    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Mayo Clinic takes good care of its salaried employees, with flexible work hours, and healthy work atmosphere, little overtime, and competitive pay.

    Cons

    You may not want to work elsewhere! Which can encourage lifer-ism and the lack of dynamicism that comes with it.

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

    Pros

    Great workplace, friendly people, quality of management varies unit-to-unit, 1:1-2 ICU ratio, 1:2-3 PCU ratio, 1:3-4 floor ratio, pay is excellent compared to national average when factoring in living cost, excellent PTO accrual

    Cons

    Get floated when your unit is overstaffed, a few units are crazy busy while most are reasonable and some are nice, cold climate, not much to do in town

    Keep doing what you're doing! I have no problems with management

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice and latest technology,clean and decent work environment.Most of the co workers are friendly and cooperative.

    Cons

    Race and politics are rampant,open discrimination against minority and blacks in some areas.Very hard to work independently as writing ups,discrimination,biases and verbal abuses makes every day work impossible to work.No one care about minority voice.If you are written up by your white co worker even for very simple things,it is done deal you are over! No one care about you say if you are minority or black,the faulty is automatically yours.Some white employees are openly hostile if you don't worship them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you minority voices too.Decide on the fate of your employee based on evidence based facts not on subjective accusations.Play inclusive role.Judge people by their wok not by their color or by their race.
