    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mayo Clinic is well known. Great employee gym. Facilities are quite good, lots of cutting-edge medicine is done. Career opportunities are great in some areas.

    Cons

    Mayo is still remarkably old-fashioned. This can be great for many people in many roles, but can make it an uphill battle for career-minded women to be recognized for your work. The organization is still rather centered around male doctors with stay-at-home-wives... i.e., gym childcare hours, appropriate benefits, lack of sufficient breast pumping rooms in work areas, and lack of formal maternity leave support the men...

    Advice to Management

    Get up to date when it comes to supporting the female half of your staff. You can't honestly say that you're equal opportunity on paper, and then only offer childcare at the gym from noon to 2 pm on weekdays when working moms can never take advantage of it. Not to mention allowing blatantly sexist behaviors to continue, particularly in research. The fact that particular PIs bring in a lot of research money isn't good...

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic mission (to care/cure others) that drives the institution. You can live in a small city (100,000 people) and have a 5-10 minute commute. The cost of living in Rochester is low and there is a major metropolis (Minneapolis/St. Paul) 80-90 minutes away, including a major airport.

    Cons

    The institution is very risk averse, which makes it slow-moving. Mayo provides little vacation days (3 weeks/year is what you get when you start). Compensation is significantly lower than in other companies. Left due to lack of opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Young professionals will want more opportunities for professional development.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic

    Pros

    There are opportunities/funding for interesting clinic-based research.

    Cons

    Basic research arm of Mayo Clinic seems underdeveloped. Very clinically focused (a pro and con). In research, teams are largely not defined by projects, but by expertise.. which can lead to disconnect among members working on projects together. Very top-down structure.
