    I worked at Mayo Clinic (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork approach to patient care. Good benefits (that were once excellent) including health, life, dental, and disability insurance. Paid time off. Fraud protection. Education reimbursement for the right people. A diverse population of employees from around the world.

    Cons

    I was at Mayo clinic for seven years. I only worked in one of many departments at Mayo Clinic. There is a strong emphasis on education. Most management positions are filled based on education as opposed to their ability to do the job successfully. Obtaining further education is promoted as long as it does not interfere with the job. Employees are "coerced" into conforming with employer expectations or they are pushed out. Independent thinkers are seldom encouraged. Employees with mental health issues are not valued as individuals. The programs established for employee well being are geared towards encouraging employees to conform or quit. Parking is a big issue.

    Advice to Management

    Concern yourself with your employees. Mental health is a big issue and it is difficult to expect the world to take it seriously if one of the leaders in Healthcare does not. Declining benefits, small raises, limiting education opportunities, poor parking options, and stifling creativity are all contributing to the decline of Mayo Clinic as being a leading employer. The more corporate you become, the less happy employees are. The Mayo brothers would turn over in their graves if they could see what is happening to their vision.
