    Collaborative Atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Rochester, MN

    Pros- Work with experienced, dedicated professionals
    - Access to individuals with subject matter expertise that is unparalleled
    - Ample opportunity, if you desire

    Cons- Same as any large organization: necessity of processes, things take time - not a knock on the organization, but rather an unfortunate side effect of large corporations
    - Location is rather unfortunate as well - Small town MN

    Advice to Senior ManagementA more progressive office culture may cater well to young, up-and-coming professionals.

    Excellent mentorship & research opportunities with great benefits.

    Research Associate (Current Employee) Rochester, MN

    Pros-Excellent mentorship and research opportunities.
    -Best hospital in the world, so translational research training here is deep, broad, and diverse.
    -Chance to work with the world's experts in just about every clinical and translational research area.
    -The salary is competitive especially in light of the low cost of living in Rochester, MN.
    -Benefits are plentiful and the commute is very light.
    -The culture is strongly focused on providing the best care for each patient.

    ConsWinters can be harsh, but with the patient and employee subways in addition to on-site parking provided (standard for
    research fellows), it is not a problem. Also, with many local state parks nearby in addition to Quarry Hill, these
    locations provide great opportunities to take advantage of exploring the outdoors during these times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue:

    1) increasing employee benefits: great that you will now be matching retirement investments,

    2) to offer more opportunities for employee learning and growth: try to find a way to build a more user friendly
    Employee Entrepreneurial Program,

    3) the culture at Mayo is excellent, try to help further build the Rochester community through greater diversity.

    4) to provide free bus transportation for employees who do not have on site parking & build more downtown parking
    facilities.

    Needs of the patient come first.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAn inspiring environment to collaborate with world class surgeons, scientists, and healthcare professionals in order to provide the highest level of healthcare.

    ConsCentralized decision-making and administrative infrastructure with decreased autonomy for individual departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am very impressed with Mayo's vision and leadership. What differentiates this healthcare institution from others is that at every level of leadership there is a physician who works side-by-side with a skilled administrator and makes decisions based on patient care.
