    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    World class medical organization that takes the most difficult cases. Great entry to get on your resume.

    Cons

    Location can be brutal in the winter. Management has made benefits of working here progressively worse over the last few years, and will have increasing difficulty attracting employees to this weather just by trying to match other medical centers' benefits in better locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current management has strayed from the Mayo brothers vision, and has moved toward being a business corporation. Steps need to be taken to return to the vision for treatment of patients, and also for treatment of employees.

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

    Pros

    I have had opportunities to work with people from many professions on projects that are worthwhile. Mayo leaders take a sincere interest in your work and are willing to give of their time to help you when their involvement is needed. People here are very busy but always willing to help. This place has a BIG heart.

    Cons

    Periodic micro-managing; may need to provide some of your own resources at your own expense; commitment to transparency inconsistent; female physicians seem to be promoted only so far--not one has served as Mayo's top CEO over the course of its 150-year history. This is no criticism of our current CEO, who is excellent in the role and is an inspirational leader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach employees and entrust them with opportunities to grow; share information, good and bad; tap staff for problem-solving work-unit challenges; remember to recognize effort--the spoken word shared in the moment goes a long way.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic

    Pros

    I had to relocate recently and this is the only reason I left Mayo! Hardest decision of my life! This is the best hospital in the world to work at or be a patient. Extremely professional, kind, and competent employees. The best environment for nurses to work in. Everyone respects each other and you can depend on your co workers. "Mayo nice" is a thing. If you don't have it...you won't last here! I'd trust these people with my life!

    Cons

    Rochester, MN is kind of in the middle of nowhere. And it's Minnesota so winter is endless and there's no such thing as a snow day so your going to have to plow your way to work! St. Mary's is an old hospital and a couple of the floors are a little dated, but most are being remodeled!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing!

    I worked at Mayo Clinic as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a wonderful place, you can work with different designers, coders, managers, etc. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help if you have any questions. You can touch the real projects and bring your talent to the world. Also it has the best gym and personal trainer, you have your health in secure.

    Cons

    There is no cons for Mayo Clinic as fas as I know. The only thing might be super cold weather in the winter which I am so lucky don't need to be there.
