    Pros

    Rewarding work at a place that really does put the patient first. Great healthcare. Mayo does a great job of letting everyone on staff (whether in direct patient care or not) that they contribute to the mission.

    Cons

    Like anyplace, managers can make or break the job. Mayo has been built on a seniority system, so quick adoption or consensus is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to challenge all staff. Keep up the good work of telling the story of Mayo Clinic and it's workers, but find a way to measure your managers better.
