    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.

    Pros

    The over all environment is good. Everyone has a sense of pride to be employed by Mayo Clinic. There is access to great care resources and events.

    Cons

    Work life balance at Mayo like many health care systems can be difficult to maintain. In Rochester especially where the majority of the people in the community have direct ties to Mayo Clinic it may feel difficult to separate work from personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the strongest managers are always keen advocates for their staff and that they make efforts to link development opportunities that align with staff specific goals.

    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.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been at Mayo Clinic since the early 2000s, and it's the only major institution I've worked in, though I have had other part time positions elsewhere. I didn't realize how good I had it for the first few years until I started to realize how hard it is to get in to a company like this, especially in economic hard times. I now work in a teleworking position and actually live out of state, even though I started out on the Rochester campus downtown. Working from home has improved my job satisfaction immensely, even though there are sometimes technical difficulties, being able to avoid commuting and having to buy work clothes makes up for the periodic inconvenience. Mayo does take good care of their employees; though, just like any large company, some work units have better supervisors and policies than other. Overall, though, they try to keep things fair in terms of compensation and hours, including systematic raises and pay ranges.

    Cons

    There are often "hiring freezes" in which, in order to save money, when someone leaves, they are not replaced except for in rare circumstances. Our work unit has experienced this several times now, and the work continues to be redistributed, sometimes stretching people beyond their limits, even if temporarily. The past few years, there have been a lot of campaigns to "work differently," meaning finding ways to work more efficiently and using less resources, waste, etc. It has made a big difference in a positive way in many areas; and, in the current job market, many of us who are still working, we are grateful to have a job with good benefits--however, some of the uncertainty is a little unsettling for some work groups who are always wondering if they will be next on the chopping block. For the most part, however, if a team is eliminated, those folks get first priority in placement in other departments.

    Pros

    a wonderful hospital with a lot of practices and research opportunities; depending on if you can get into transnational research, it is a very unique place you can grow yourself.

    Cons

    bureaucratic system. severe political barriers for junior people. cold weather and boring small-size city. comparing to very lively eastern and western coast, here is a place for you to start a career and raise your small kids, but not good for expanding and finding more opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please try to keep good employees. location is already some clear disadvantage for mayo.
