    Pros

    "The needs of the patient comes first." The basic value of Mayo is always in view. Great, friendly environment. Wonderful employee events and benefits.

    Cons

    I used to work at the downtown campus and had to take a commuter bus, as employee parking is about to 15+ years! However, I now work from home, so that's no longer an issue!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the outstanding work! I am so proud to be a Mayo Clinic employee!

    Pros

    I have worked for Mayo Clinic for over 8 years and have always been impressed with the attitude and work ethic of my co-workers. I work with a very talented and fun team.

    Cons

    Like with many large companies, our management is always working on breaking down the "silo" effect. So many smaller areas around the campus have been brought under one division but there is still a lot of work yet to do.

    Pros

    The work environment is great along with the people. Benefits are great and very layback. For example, HR doesn't ask for documentations to prove if you are married in order to add your spouse to benefits. They dont ask for medical certification to see if you qualify for FMLA. Managers are always very helpful and willing to find resources to help make their employees job easier.

    Cons

    There are no room for advancement. Mayo is a very large employer but in order to get promoted you have to know the right people. It not base on performance, skills, knowledge, or educational background. It who you know and that can be a downfall because talented people are not in the right position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to line staffs more often. They are the ones that have direct contact with patients everyday. Management should value line staffs more and appreciates their works.

    Pros

    The Mayo Clinic is an incredibly productive and professional non-profit organization to work for. Although predominantly a clinical institution, the Mayo Clinic heavily values research and is an excellent environment to perform scientific research in. The research environment and the available core facilities are all top-notch.

    Cons

    The cold. Unfortunately, the long, harsh winters in Rochester, MN are not for everyone.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work life balance. Surrounded by dedicated staff through all levels and positions.

    Cons

    Retirement benefits (403b) only matches 50% of your first 4% -- although they still have a fully funded pension plan.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employees and patients.

    Pros

    Good environment to work in, lots of opportunity to learn processes, tools and grow.

    Cons

    Very deep politics and preferential treatment to "special' people. A lot of that is affecting certainly supply chain management. Very limited opportunity to grow, as many of the leaders in higher level positions are young and as such.. keep waiting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep politics to a minimum, promote people based on qualifications and not mostly backend deals.

    Pros

    Rewarding work at a place that really does put the patient first. Great healthcare. Mayo does a great job of letting everyone on staff (whether in direct patient care or not) that they contribute to the mission.

    Cons

    Like anyplace, managers can make or break the job. Mayo has been built on a seniority system, so quick adoption or consensus is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to challenge all staff. Keep up the good work of telling the story of Mayo Clinic and it's workers, but find a way to measure your managers better.
