    Pros

    Healthcare, Education and Research are the three major pillars of this organization and it has a world class reputation in each.

    Cons

    The committee structure that Mayo management depends on can be somewhat "top-heavy". Also, unfortunately, in our nation's environment of shrinking medical reimbursements, our health care coverage and retirement benefits are becoming somewhat watered down...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would greatly benefit Mayo and it's workforce if the administration reversed it's recent policy changes that result in work experience no longer being valued. Many employees with decades of experience who, at one time, could have advanced on their career paths based on an academic degree OR equivalent work experience must now go back to school in order to advance/climb their career ladder and thus receive a decent annual salary increase.

    Pros

    World class medical organization that takes the most difficult cases. Great entry to get on your resume.

    Cons

    Location can be brutal in the winter. Management has made benefits of working here progressively worse over the last few years, and will have increasing difficulty attracting employees to this weather just by trying to match other medical centers' benefits in better locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current management has strayed from the Mayo brothers vision, and has moved toward being a business corporation. Steps need to be taken to return to the vision for treatment of patients, and also for treatment of employees.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people, with a executives that provide clarity and vision. Work-life balance is great, as are medical benefits. A lot of visiting scholars from outside the USA makes working with colleagues interesting and always changing.

    Cons

    Pay is low and Rochester is a lonely place if you are single. A great place to start or have a family but only if your spouse also has work at the Clinic. Salaries are too low for one income at a Fellow level to support a full family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard on being clear about expectations in this changing healthcare and NIH funding environment.

    Pros

    Team- oriented colleagues
    Provides adequate budgets for projects
    Super secretarial support
    High- level projects for the field

    Cons

    Flat management structure-- not much of a career path to follow
    Pay only OK, no bonuses
    Medical benefits have been severely downgraded for 2015, paltry retirement match
    Mayo does not fire those who don't perform

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enhance career paths-- more levels would be helpful in providing somewhere to go in one's career
    Provide bonuses
    Don't make such radical benefits changes in one year's time
    Be willing to fire non- performers

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Mayo Clinic offers a wide vast of variety in different settings in which to work for your job. You have the opportunity to work in the clinical, hospital, and research under one company. They are a strong advocate for furthering education for the employees through higher educations and company classes.

    Cons

    They need to find ways to find more ways to keep the current employees from leaving too soon as well as draw new employees to join Mayo Clinic's teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to better communication from upper management to employees so everyone is aware of the phases that Mayo Clinic is heading for in the future.
