    Not a good career move for someone with prior experience

    Clinical Lab Technologist (Current Employee)
    Rochester, MN

    ProsAs a science major, I would see this is as a good place for a first job. But if you are looking at Mayo as a replacement to your present job, I would not recommend it unless you are coming in with a medically related background (doctor, nurse, etc.) or are moving into what you want to do for a long time. Opportunity for advancement is not good so unless you are willing to wait, this is probably not where you want to be. Compensation is good for what you are doing, but it comes at a big price.

    ConsWhen you first come on board here, your prior experience means something. Once you've been here for a time, what you did prior to coming here means little or nothing. And movement within the organization is based on who you know, not what you know. I can say that the job I hold has really turned me off on staying in a lab related job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe looking at internal candidates within your group from time to time might be something to consider unless you are happy turning over 1/4 of your staff every couple of years. Hiring external candidates to your groups tend to make people within your group look elsewhere for opportunity (whether in or out of the company).

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mission Driven

    Administrator (Former Employee)

    ProsMayo really does put the patient first in virtually all of their decisions, which makes for a rewarding work experience.

    ConsIt has added several layers of administrators over the past 10 years which has created a more bureaucratic work place and has reduced the decision-making roles of those who interact with patients the most.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview the management structure before it starts having a negative effect on patient satisfaction.

    Loved working for Mayo Clinic as an RN.

    Staff RN (Former Employee)
    Rochester, MN

    ProsExcellent management, work loads was fair. Company that gave a great raise every year that I worked there. Excellent and easy to navigate benefits. Truly felt supported by management and physicians. Conferences and learning opportunities were encouraged and paid for.

    ConsWorking for such a large organization sometimes there are changes made company wide that may not make the most sense for your particular position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
