    Pros

    Co-workers can be fun to work with.

    Cons

    Building is very short staffed and difficult to get or retain new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show staff that they are appreciated by saying nice things to them more often, show verbal recognition, not just free donuts on Wed

    Awesome experience - great opportunities for professional growth. Management listened to concerns of employees and implemented changes when possible.

    Pros

    Generous paid time off. Plenty of interesting work going on. If you are on the "inside" you will have smooth sailing. If you are not, you will be on the outs and forgotten about. So, if you know someone at a fairly high level on the allied health side you may really like it.

    Cons

    Inexperienced people getting promoted to management positions, leading to chaos. Rampant cronyism. Very weak HR that will side with whatever management wants to do--bending rules, giving jobs to friends, etc. Lots of "lifers" as well--people who have only worked at Mayo and don't know anything else. Aggressive affirmative action hiring.

    Pros

    The place where I am provides flexible schedule, ample learning opportunity, good benefit and friendly environment. It is very stable job.

    Cons

    This job does not provide a high salary but it is ok to live in this town with the salary I make.
    Rochester is a small city and has a limited option for cultural activities.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much to say about advice to management. I hope you don't mandate this section for everybody.
