  7. The Needs Of The Wealthy Comes First

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic

    Pros

    World class organization, expensive buildings, patient centered, and pension funded.

    Cons

    Poor middle management, ideas by people doing the actual work are not listened to or implemented due to committee management style or lazy people not willing to change or learn something new, ultra conservative, managers actually spend an ubsorbantly amount of time coming up with policies that are not evenly enforced. Some are meeting lovers. Also, some upper managers or physicians are arrogant, and if you are paid hourly (allied-health staff) be prepared to pick up the slack of overpaid salaried coworkers so they can use the workout center during work hours. Hourly paid individuals are kept on a tight time tracking leash with strict sick time rules. Salaried workers have much more freedoms and trust in their time management abilities. Thus some abuse that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't assume that some of your employees are not patients as well and deserve being treated with an equal amount of respect. Maybe if management or physicians viewed all employees that are supporting them as future donors to the Mayo mission respect of all would improve. Never know...maybe one of your employees is a secret millionaire.

    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.

    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.
