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

    Pros

    Unlike most companies today, as a non-profit company that deals with human health and lives, the Mayo Clinic hires only top-notch people with world-class skills, so you get to work with the best and brightest. Mayo understands that programmers working remotely produces better code, faster, and of higher quality. They actively encourage anybody who can (myself included) to work from home. This creates positive morale. Benefits are excellent, including accumulating PTO that the employee can use at any time for any reason.

    Cons

    There are so many different systems at Mayo that some are using obsolete versions of languages and tools (i.e., programs in 1990's pre-.NET ASP with Access databases and IBM 370 COBOL systems). In addition to state of the art development projects, you will be confronted with maintaining or upgrading older software. This is a job for programmers with long experience

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your development teams and project managers when making decisions on new systems, platforms, and third-party solutions.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, supportive management, excellent work-life balance initiatives like free wellness seminars and classes and on-site workout facility, tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Sometimes not critical enough of long-time employees whose productivity has relaxed. Low morale among some teams due to management not being fair. 24 hour on-call rotation expected in many positions. Unwillingness to hire part-time employees. The waiting list for an on-site parking spot is 12.5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Mayo Clinic could greatly expand the qualifications and diversity of its I.T. work force if part-time and flexible positions, including job-sharing positions were posted. Mayo Clinic is rated high when it comes to being a flexible work-place, but this seems to apply only to physicians, nurses, and researchers. When it comes to I.T., the jobs listed are all full time, many requiring a 24-hour on-call rotation. This is daunting for many employees with families. It seems the accepted path is to be hired in at full-time, prove oneself, then ask for a reduction to part-time. Usually, the part-time employees prove themselves to be just as productive as the full-time ones, and they are happier due to the flexibility afforded for work-life balance. It would be great to see I.T. employees considered to be hired in on a part-time or supplemental basis.
