    Excellent benefits. Career growth opportunities. Respect by administration

    Takes longer to get promoted as current leaders are very satisfied in their positions and are not easily moved.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your current employees to get promoted within the company a bit easier.

    Pros

    Good compensation package.
    Midwestern values
    Encourages furthering education
    Constantly changing environment

    Cons

    Management issues
    Benefits packages keeps getting reduced
    Run by committee

    Advice to Management

    Have more follow-through. Don't encourage furthering ones education as a way to advance at Mayo and do nothing to assist in that advancement. Seems to be more interested in finding talend outside of mayo instead of advancing from within.

    Pros

    Access to human specimen and diverse patient population. Lots of smart, driven clinician-researcher, making it THE best place to do translational research.

    Cons

    low career mobility for PhD scientists. Takes long time to get tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Foster strategic, high leverage research as oppose to low impact, low return projects. Fund the excellence, not mediocre. Please give younger scientists more chances to succeed, not the ones been here for 30+ years without active funding or research any more.

    Spend more money on making sure processes are done correctly. Infrastructure / Systems are there to support future growth. Open up better communications and direction throughout the lower ranks.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people were down home and nice to get along with.

    Cons

    The teams did not have a good grasp as to what they were doing and why they were doing the tasks. My reporting director was bios against women. Hense laying off 6 of them while I was there. He spoke down to them and took their work away from them trying to have them feel belittled and not sure of their work.

    Advice to Management

    One one on one time should be for me to have and reach out for help. They should tell you what they do not and they do like.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce duplication of effort by allowing departments to share what they're developing or working on, departments being more transparent as to what technology/product they are developing

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The diversity that comes with a large company is always beneficial. Collaboration and respectful behavior as an expectation makes work more enjoyable and creates trust.

    Cons

    The strength of a large corporation can very quickly become it's weakness. Finding the balance is a key factor in its success, particularly with regards to staff satisfaction and retention. Disrespectful behavior should be dealt with more consistently, particularly among leadership.

    Advice to Management

    When disrespectful behavior comes from sr. management it needs to be thoroughly investigated and dealt with according to the same standards as those who are not in leadership. Trust your content experts. They are called experts for a reason. Empower people to self manage as much as possible. Doing so will make for happier employees and less work for you.
