I have been working at Mayo Foundation

ProsMayo is highly respected in the medical community.

Consto the point where employee's are disposible, rather than valued for past and current work experience.

Advice to Senior Managementtreat others with respect. It is not a family orientated organization any longer. It is all finacial driven with minimal information shared from the upper management down.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Employer; Great Employees

Manager (Former Employee)
Rochester, MN

I worked at Mayo Foundation

ProsPros: good benefits, great work-life balance, solid employer, terrific people to work with, office space to perform job, low political environment.

ConsCons: tough to move up in the company, working with physicians can be challenging, very difficult to relocate to another Mayo entity, very low pay, no bonuses. Negotiate hard for your initial/base salary because what you start with will determine future pay (including promotions). Don't make the mistake of thinking that you'll eventually get paid more because of a strong performance because it wont happen. Management will thank you for a job well done, but don't expect an increase in salary. Their excuse will always be "we're a non-profit, academic institution. Pay from such organizations is traditionally low."

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more clearly to staff on specifically what is required (accomplishments, years of service, education, etc.) in order to advance within the organization.

The Emperor Clinic has no Clothes!

Support Staff (Former Employee)
Rochester, MN

I worked at Mayo Foundation

ProsIt is only worthwhile to work at Mayo if you are in the health related areas, i.e. Physicians, Nursing Staff and other Clinicians/Researchers, the other big positive if it weren't such a horrid place, is they have low to zero cost motorcoach transportation throughout the area towns (up to 50 miles away), that is their best attribute. The health care is low cost, but rapidly rising, it is very good coverage but you can never expect a 2nd opinion, they all sing from the same sheet. There are good people working there of course, but to quote the movie "Office Space", "You have a place where people work just hard enough to avoid trouble, or being fired."

ConsArchaic communications and organization, Very Very cliquish, it is all about playing "the game" at Mayo. They are a not-for-profit organization, but having seen all of their mailings, they are very dollar hungry. If you are not bubbly and in the "In Crowd" you will be seriously disappointed. If you truly care about your craft and improving the process, again you will be very disappointed. There are nice people working there that truly care about what they do, but if you get a "people ladder" climber above you, prepare to be stepped on as they ascend, unless you are a willing accomplice. The most phony corporate culture I've ever witnessed. It is truly regrettable that a foundation that has done so much to aid in people's health has become a corporate quagmire. I would say if you can get a decent paying job with little contact with other associates/managers, it's worth a go for the benefits and the only decent wage in Rochester, MN

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at yourselves and ask how the Father or the Mayo Brothers would view the way the Clinic is run now, and what it's priorities are. Look deeply into your departments. Your Doctors treat your Nurses like Dirt, most of your middle management are agenda filled parasites who value their own interests above what is best for the company, and indeed would sink the company if it suited their goals. Do something to insure that it is actually possible to get a 2nd medical opinion within the clinic. Most of all, quit believing your own hype. The sun does not shine from your behinds, learn some humility with clients and employees, learn about both groups, question them personally about what is right and wrong with the Clinic with no fear of retribution. On the employee side, give some teeth to the employee advocacy relations area (I don't recall its company name anymore) Lastly make sure you make your motto and policy of "Mutual Respect" is more than lip-service.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
