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

    Pros

    My immediate people I work with are fantastic, dedicated, and talented

    Cons

    No management, no merit raises, and no recognition for your efforts. BURNOUT is a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve management and recognize the dedicated employees for their hard work. Also, degrees are overrated in some positions. People that can't be hired for the job they are already doing are made to train other's just because they have a degree...and still can't perform.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Mayo Clinic is world renowned for is excellent and often cutting edge medical treatment, its medical education and its medical research. It works tirelessly to address the needs of the patient to create the best possible outcomes.

    Cons

    Mayo Clinic is like 2 companies in one. The medical practice side, and the Administrative side (including HR, IT, Finance, etc.) On the Administrative side, the culture attempts to emulate the medical practice, but to its own detriment. Key decisions are made in committee with no single accountable party, authority (top down) is often undermined by power (bottom up). While the Admin organization attempts to serve the medical practice, they often provide sub-optimal solutions that are the outcome of minimizing any potential change within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of committees required to make any decision. Empower leadership to be accountable for strategic and significant tactical outcomes. More transparency to "what acceptable looks like" and less focus on being Minnesota nice.

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

    Pros

    Great co workers in my area. Not all departments are the same though. It is very different in patient financial services compared to clinical settings.

    Cons

    Management was very disconnected to staff and is always in meetings instead of actually managing. Ideas for improvement are not usually listened to.

    Pros

    benefits. pay, patient care, efficiency in a troubling time in healthcare

    Cons

    supervisors micromanage, don't know who is actually working and who talks about working
    closed doors of communication from upper management
    transportation
    parking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take time to listen to employee's concerts and don't blow them off
    advancement within current employees rather than complete focus on diversity and external applicants, the grass is always greener philosophy needs to go.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic

    Pros

    Well-staffed relative to other area facilities.
    Collegial atmosphere.
    Adequate supplies for performing our work.
    Great mission!

    Cons

    Tone-deaf management.
    Focus on the bottom line a little too much.
    Will put up with bad actors in mgmt. without any apparent accountability for performance/excellence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 reviews of management to include input from rank & file.
    Take employee survey results seriously.
    Be open to input from those of us on the firing line and actually doing the work of patient care.

    Pros

    Always have supplies, nice work environment, benefits are ok

    Cons

    Management very slow to act, little respect for nursing, raises are based on where you are on a pay scale, not merit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees (nurses esp.) BEFORE making widespread policy changes
