    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

    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.

    They are # 1 at what they do.....

    It has been said that they are getting rid of vintage para medical employees. Well, it happened to me. 35+ years of service and I got selected to retire because of being outspoken towards certain administration who haver NEVER worked with patients in their life......

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees do their job. If it's not broke, don't fix it!!!

    Pros

    Compensation is good. Mayo attracts a lot of people and stays cutting edge. They arent afraidel to spend money to improve facilities

    Cons

    I never geel like i have support. Supervisors in therapy should not be supervisors. I dont get emotional support, questions answered timely, performance feedback, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Supes and management should have better people skills, not just clinical skills

    Pros

    * An ideal first job for a new college grad
    * An ideal employer for someone in medical field (physician, nurse, med tech, etc.)

    Cons

    * Moving out of a present position is difficult unless you have the right backing (from management)
    * Seems like positions are decided on by who you know, not what you know
    * If your occupation isn't medically related, there are other employers out there so keep looking

    Advice to Management

    * Listen to your veteran employees as they might have to help you someday
    * Having a good first hand knowledge of the area would be extremely valuable for management (putting someone in a role they know little about makes it tough for person to earn respect of those under them)
    * There are a lot of good medical institutions out there; don't expect people to drop what they are doing because Mayo Clinic is calling.
