    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, goal driven, patient oriented. Offer great benefits, discounts on many things in the area, a wonderful gym and more.

    Cons

    I feel that there are certain areas that Mayo can be more competitive with their wages, parking on campus is a nightmare, and surround areas to park are just as bad

    Advice to Management

    Management, if you are in charge of a department, know and understand what it takes to do the job. As a member of a certain department you should be able to perform all the job functions as everyone else. Listen to your employees, their suggestions, and their concerns, as nobody is above being able to listen to feedback. Treat your employees how you would like to be treated and how you would like your family and friends to be treated.

    Pros

    Mayo is hands down the best employer I've worked for thus far. The support that they provide their RNs is tremendous. The learning environment that is created sets nurses up for success.

    Cons

    I only wish they had more locations that were closer to home for me after relocating!

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co workers, really good team environment, excellent patient care, opportunities to advance nursing career and nursing education

    Cons

    Some managers are terrible. Staffing has been bad for a year, upper management seems to have their heads in the clouds. Pay is not the greatest

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your nurses on the ground! If we are saying a system isn't working, its probably NOT working

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great town to live in and around.

    Cons

    Rochester, MN has some of the harshest winter weather national. Cliquish management and departments. Some people advance not because of education and they deserve to, because of who they know and who's butt they kiss.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to look beyond the good ole boy system for advancement.

    Pros

    Policies and Procedures are consistent...treating all fair. Leadership is amazing, respectful and great follow through. Great place to work!

    Cons

    This was only a con for me because I did not have a degree to move forward in my career. They are big on education which I think is great. I just could not complete at the time.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I currently enjoy flex time (between 7a-5p) and being able to telework 1 day per week. Flex scheduling has been very helpful when trying to maintain some work/life balance.

    Cons

    Rules are not always enforced equally amongst co-workers. Leadership has indicated we can't telework more than 1 day per week but we have one person who is teleworking from another state. Her move was never announced to the group and they even kept an office for her with her name on the door. We can reach her by phone and email, but we aren't supposed to know that she is actually 3,000 miles away. So stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Communicate changes in a timely manner. Apply departmental and institutional rules fairly and equally. This is not news and these issues repeatedly come up in the employee satisfaction survey. We really mean it. Do something about it.
