    I worked at Mayo Clinic as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a wonderful place, you can work with different designers, coders, managers, etc. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help if you have any questions. You can touch the real projects and bring your talent to the world. Also it has the best gym and personal trainer, you have your health in secure.

    Cons

    There is no cons for Mayo Clinic as fas as I know. The only thing might be super cold weather in the winter which I am so lucky don't need to be there.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities, team work, and diversity. Pay and benefits are above average. Value in going home knowing you are contributing to a good cause.

    Cons

    Matrix organization. Constantly being pulled between different priorities. The person dictating the workload usually isn't the same person with the control of the resources. Periods of extreme burnout and frustration. All part of working through a major change in the industry though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing standardization. Involve frontline staff more in project planning. If your going to burn certain jobs as part of strategic reprioritization, a slight raise for those picking up the slack would be nice. Overall, keep up the good work. It is a great place to work, and great things are being accomplished.

    Former Employee - Support Specialist in Rochester, MN

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My work area was overseen by a couple of managers who were always supportive, patient and professional. Their managers were likewise.

    Cons

    Throughout my time there, both as a contractor (at first) and then later as a full-time employee, I occasionally got the sense that my direct input (at meetings, etc.) was squashed. I didn't have any delusions that my manager knew what he was doing, so I did what I was told. But every once in a while I'd offer up something only to have it shot down pretty much right away. Still, it was not my responsibility to manage, so I left well enough alone and they did fine without implementing my suggestions. Maybe they just weren't that useful....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to trust your people and take care of them as you did with me and others.

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

    Pros

    Offer competitive benefits and wages.
    Really care about their employees and the patients.
    Easy to move between departments and most of the management want to help you work towards your goals.
    Lots of opportunities to be involved in committees.

    Cons

    It is sometimes very hard to get fired and so there are people working there that don't fit the Mayo values.
    If you need time off in the summer months, you must know early in the year and have your request in, and then it is determined by seniority. Can be hard to get the time off that you want.
    One of the most frustrating things about working here is, they offer decent benefits, but as an employee it is super hard to get an appointment to be seen unless it is an emergency.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, excellent atmosphere, great benefits.

    Cons

    Generally speaking, the work environment is great, however my recent experience has been outside the norm. I can only assume it's a different aspect of the organization that allows for some inappropriate behaviors (puzzling as that may be), however I know that Mayo does great things and employs great people, so I'm not concerned by this small piece of the employee population with respect to Mayo as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be an example of the values of the organization. They are excellent values; it's a shame to ignore them.

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

    Pros

    Excellent patient care. Fair wages and benefits. State of the art equipment.

    Cons

    Change in benefits to exclude retired Mayo employees from health care once they become Medicare eligible. Disrespectful, arrogant and bullying behavior from physicians and supervisors is never addressed or disciplined. I didn't quit my job, I quit the people I worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the value of all employees. Make separate funds available for nursing education. Education budgets for departments seldom filter down to nursing if ever. It seems the physicians have no problem using all the funds on themselves.

    Great company that really cares about developing you so that you are the best both for yourself and for the company

    Good benefits

    There is much bureaucracy, but that is to be expected with a company as expansive as Mayo Clinic.

    Health insurance exclusive to Mayo
