    Pros

    Good stipend, the people are friendly and want you to succeed. Care about your well-being throughout the program. Time to graduation in the grad school is ~4.5 years, so pretty quick. Great research, cutting edge and very applicable! Lots of great mentors to choose from.

    Cons

    Very high academic rigor rating. Very fast paced program, begins in the summer before other graduate programs. Winters here are long. Not a lot of night life or entertainment...but some. You'll be too busy anyways so doesn't matter.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, great benefits, coworkers and managers care about you and your well-being. Low turn over. They have very high standards and will support you to meet them. Very responsive leadership, even upper management in our department (over 120 people) would always take time to meet with anyone who had an issue. Hires many quality people. Employees for the most part treat each other with respect, no matter their job title. Working for the number one hospital in the US does give one some pride. Company reputation is outstanding.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, it felt like an act of congress for anything to change. Long working hours. A lot of nights and weekends depending on your position. Not a lot of vacation for the first few years. When I was there the cafeteria food was a bit sub-par.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it! Your doing a great job!

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

    Pros

    Good benefit program, access to healthy living center (gym) at reasonable cost, good PTO program

    Cons

    In the role of Clinical Research Assistant. No advancement to Associate Clinical Research Coordinator and no pay increase without an Associate's degree if you are at the top of your pay bracket. There is nothing in between. Those without a degree who were grandfathered in as a coordinator several years ago fear no advancement opportunities, too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop punishing your employees for not having a college education. Those of us who have worked at Mayo for 15+ years don't deserve to be treated like this! If someone can do the job and goes above and beyond to meet the needs of the PI and research study, you should compensate them instead of holding them back. Find a way to "give the dog a bone" or you'll soon lose good people!

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Hourly pay is good.
    Benefits are satisfactory, but becoming far less desirable (other compass Ness offer better).

    Cons

    Lack of diverse environment. You are given an "occurrence" despite the worst of circumstances, there is no compromise. You are treated like a peon and managed by the second.
    Feels like colleagues are out to get each other into trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and give them the benefit of doubt.
    Talk with both parties if there is a dispute and refrain from bias.
    Be more open and not so scared of "different."

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the good work! I have no compliants as far as my nurse manager goes. He is an awesome person and boss!

    Pros

    They offer much training and support to their staff. The pay s also a little higher then surrounding areas. I like the team spirit that the working enviroment has.

    Cons

    There is however a little bit of a higher then you addittude here. All nurses work hard, all students had to work hard to get to where they are.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more compassionate to the little people beneath you, be a little more organized.

    Pros

    A good place to be if you are there looking to just get by and waiting for retirement.

    Cons

    It isn't a place to grow a career. Once Mayo have you, they are focusing on the next person to hire to fill the promotional job that they were dangling in front of you for the last 2-5 years. They sing you a song about career development and career opportunities to get you to do work above your pay grade. Mayo doesn't believe in promotions, they only fill vacancies. There are no incentive to work hard. So how do you get promoted you ask? Work on your soft skills. Learn how to suck up. Learn to appear busy. The phrase "fake it until you make it" couldn't be more true for this company. The company does not correct or fire anyone; they just pass them along

    Advice to Management

    Sit down and listen to your front line employees. The ones that are doing the work. Sitting up top gets shaky when the people at the bottoms starts to crumble.
