I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Cons

    Winters 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 Management

    Continue:

    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.


  2. "Excellent institution for medical training with great benefits, but in a small city with harsh winter and little to do"

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are few hospital systems with the prestige and innovation of the Mayo Clinic, so training here is a unique experience. You get to work with the world's experts in just about every medical specialty and sub-specialty. The salary is excellent in light of the low cost of living in Rochester, MN. Benefits are plentiful and the commute is easy. The culture is strongly focused on providing the best care for each patient.

    Cons

    With such a large institution, bureaucracy is inevitable. There are way too many administrators disconnected from the front line clinical care who sometimes make ill-informed decisions that negatively impact patient care and physician satisfaction, even though this is a physician-led practice on the most part. The harsh winters in Minnesota is also something to behold. The bitter cold last from November to March, and it's not uncommon to have single-digit or subzero temperatures throughout the entire January.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the unnecessary bureaucracy. Continue to build Rochester to include more diversity in food and culture. Mayo Clinic is Rochester. Make it a "destination medical center".
