      The money isn’t worth your sanity

      May 6, 2021 - Prior Authorization Representative in Phoenix, AZ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Salary. Mayo is not matched by any hospital in the valley as far as pay. The money pays for them to abuse you and get away with it.

      Cons

      They’ve removed all perks. Do not listen to employees. You are just a number, you don’t matter. Constantly threatened to be written up. Micromanagement is a theme. Big brother worse than the NSA...so they can find reasons to punish you. Extremely high turn over in all of finance whether you’re registration, prior authorization, or other. Lack of opportunities for promotions or moving up. Over the top favoritism with people completely qualified and educated being passed over for promotions while others beyond fit for the role and are power hungry narcissist are allowed to control, punish, and pick on the weak.

      Grass Not Always Greener

      Apr 26, 2021 - RN Neurosurgery Care Coordinator in Phoenix, AZ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Higher paying facility compared to others in the Phoenix Valley. Challenging work, many opportunities to expand personal knowledge. Patient-centered care with many providers who are abundant in their knowledge, thorough in their assessments, and detailed in explanations of care plans, both to the nurses and patients.

      Cons

      Elitist, highly political leadership atmosphere. Since it "pays well," you are expected to eat, sleep, and breathe work 24/7; this creates a lack of work/life balance. All RN work is highly micro-managed, you are expected to be a nurse the "Mayo way" or no way, even if this does not work in application to direct patient care.

      Loved it at first, but the Kool-aid wears off

      Apr 15, 2021 - Library Specialist II in Rochester, MN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      *Good pay for the type of work I do (especially compared to other libraries) *I enjoy my work and my department *Has done a good job addressing racism and discrimination, including weekly conversations with minorities and clearly is trying to actively address these issues *Handled the COVID-19 pandemic extremely well!

      Cons

      *No maternity/parental leave (other than the minimum required by law) *Company recently dropped tuition assistance benefits *If you don't drink the Kool-aid, you won't fit in *If you're not in some very specific areas (i.e. Clinical, patient-care work), it feels like you're not important to the organization *Administration minimizes employee concerns (going so far to call legitimate concerns "myths" *Feels like organization keeps moving away from the original ideals of the Mayo brothers. Lots of lip service to the values.

      Incompetent Management at every level of Information Security

      Apr 17, 2021 - Information Security Analyst in Rochester, MN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Mayo as an organization has values.

      Cons

      This area is corrupt through and through. Practices cronyism in its hiring practices. Back stabbing between the managers of the various units leads to dysfunction. Lack of professionalism among managers. Those who do no work have a drink with their manager near to their annual review and they are set for another year of doing nothing. Employee morale is terrible throughout. Poor performing managers add a risk to the work being done and they are never addressed by the hierarchy above them (and there are many layers of manager hierarchy). Big project was to lead a network segmentation initiative and it failed miserably due to poor managerial decision making. Disrespect is shown to the employees by managers. HR does not step in to stop the cronyism. Talented people who know what they are doing are marginalized by a management team that does not know what it is doing. Talented IS people have left Mayo to go work elsewhere.

      Pay is better than most

      Apr 3, 2021 - PCT/CNA 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay for CNA/PCT position starts higher than the other big hospitals in Jax. No blood sugar checks, but you’ll do foleys. Learning hospital, so opportunities to shadow. Great cafeteria. Majority of coworkers are cool, easy to work with. Still offer a pension, 403b, partnership with ASU for continuing education, Mayo medical insurance.

      Cons

      New PCTs starting out at higher pay rate; probably same for RNs. HR will not negotiate pay. I don’t understand why hospitals do this, it doesn’t help retain experienced staff. Rare to have 3 PCTs to a unit when I left (November) so usually 14:1 or 28:1 and very unrealistic expectations for patient care/charting. Most of my coworkers were burned out, but I guess that’s becoming the standard for healthcare. You’ll float, feels like it happened every other shift and you’re not being paid like the flex team. Stopped offering tuition reimbursement last August and partnered with ASU instead. Not beneficial for my current educational goals.

      Great Pay, Great People, Constant Growth

      Apr 20, 2021 - Operations Manager in Rochester, MN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Patients come first. The employers care. The pay is one of, if the the highest in the area, especially when you take the benefits into consideration.

      Cons

      With the constant growth and a lack of qualified applicants in the area, it can put stress on staff.

      So-so

      Jan 30, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits are good- access to great care. Depending on your role and department things can be good.

      Cons

      It is an extremely oppressive culture. You must do and act the “mayo way” not only at work but out side of work becuase it is preached that no matter where you are- as an employee of Mayo you are a reflection of the institution. Having an opinion and forms of self expression are not well liked. The work all depends on your department. There is way too much autonomy for departments to make their own choices regarding things such as PTO and the like. I have been a victim of and seen instances of bullying and harassment none of which are ever appropriately dealt with. HR does nothing nor compliance especially when the once doing these things are in any type of leadership role. However if you are a “little guy” you will be chastised for every mistake you make. If you know the right people and have the in your career can be fruitful and a walk in the park. If not, you will be stuck doing the lowest jobs scratching until your nails bleed to get anywhere. And even if you know the right people if they don’t like you enough your screwed. Senior management is still living in the past and are slow to get on board with innovation and improve quality and job experience for those that work under them.
