Approves of CEO

I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Access to human specimen and diverse patient population. Lots of smart, driven clinician-researcher, making it THE best place to do translational research.

Cons

low career mobility for PhD scientists. Takes long time to get tenure.

Advice to Management

Foster strategic, high leverage research as oppose to low impact, low return projects. Fund the excellence, not mediocre. Please give younger scientists more chances to succeed, not the ones been here for 30+ years without active funding or research any more.
