    Pros

    Incredible benefits, PTO time, and wage right when you start the company. The training is very thorough and the people are great!

    Cons

    No additional income possible except the yearly wage bump. No matter how hard you work everyone gets paid the same depending on seniority only.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to reward those working harder than others.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great retirement, benefits, physicians, patients, hours, thankful for the wonderful people I work with. Mayo hires the best nurses

    Cons

    There are not a lot of cons when it comes to this company. Turn over with management is something I have seen here.

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

    Pros

    Nearly everybody at Mayo loves their job, which is great for morale. It is wonderful to work where you have options and resources for your patients. The treatment approach truly does take input from everyone on the healthcare team. It's not just Dr's writing orders. Pay is competitive, and benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Mayo is fearful of, and very slow to any change that's not an instant image booster. If it's not impressive and eye-catching, it's not worth the effort.

    Depending on your position or particular supervisor, not everybody is held to the same standards. Any attempt at clarification of expectations results in "alternative facts" being presented, which is a huge red flag.

    Some of the medical staff have an embarrassingly low understanding/tolerance for patients with concomitant social issues, and disparaging comments, even in the presence of supervisors, go unrebuked.

    Advice to Management

    Insist that your supervisors acknowledge the whole picture instead of continuing to get by with the "confirmation bias" method they're so fond of. It won't work forever. Accountability is key.

    Pros

    Great culture, great teamwork, patient centered care. The best hospital I have worked for. Takes care of their employees. Yearly raises, great benefits!

    Cons

    parking needs to be better for employees, and a gym membership or gym on campus would be nice to have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Mayo Clinic (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good hours, enjoyed my job, loved those I supported.

    Cons

    Working for Mayo is like working for the mafia.
    It's not a warm fuzzy feeling.
    Mayo does some horrible things to the staff it's truly sad. From what I hear, it's about to get worse.
    Mayo is excellent at giving minimal raises and bragging to the public on how much they value their employees. BS.
    After a raise, they jack up the health insurance at a crazy rate.
    Sooooooo happy I got the H out!
