    Pros

    I am proud to be a part of an organization that is committed to the highest quality healthcare for Arizonans. The organization is really about excellence. Additionally, I have found the pay scale to be very competitive in our regional marketplace. Tha facilities and campuses are beautiful and the medical equipment is considered state-of-the-art in many areas.

    Cons

    The culture here is slow to adapt to changes in the marketplace. The company is managed by committees which make it almost impossible to get anything done. If you are looking for a fast-paced, performance-driven environment, keep looking. The company approach to employees is patriarchal and out-dated. Average employees and even below-average employees are rewarded the same as the high performers.

    Advice to Management

    This organization desperately needs greater individual accountability. People need to be empowered to make decisions and held accountable for their performance.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Mayo Clinic are the competency and dedication of our staff. From the highest level administrator to the lowest paid employee, we are all are focused on two things: doing the best thing for our patients and obtaining the most up to date training for for jobs. We really pride ourselves on being one of the best medical facilities in the country. Another reason you would want to work here is the friendliness of our staff. Even though Mayo employees about 26000 people, it has a "small town" atmosphere of helpfulness.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is it's large size. Sometimes when patients or newly-hired employees arrive, they can feel a bit overwhelmed by the size of our medical campus. Hospitalized patients are not used to having such a large team of staff assigned to their care. If it's your first visit or you were just hired, tell us, and we'll be even more helpful. New employees are usually assigned a buddy who will mentor them through learning how such a big organization operates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. One of the most important aspects of managing such a large organization is using great communication tools to reach all of us. It's just one of the things you do very well.

    There are still plenty of slackers at this great institution who need to be weeded out. Most however, are very hard working.

    Pros

    Mayo offers career path opportunities in many different careers and the benefits for continuing education are excellent for staff at all levels.

    Cons

    To advance your career it is often times necessary to change employers. There are few opportunities to develop your career beyond Mayo Clinic locally.

    Advice to Management

    Look for and promote more individuals with leadership potential, rather than management potential. Leaders are visionary and inspire others to act. Managers are task masters who implement leadership initiatives.

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

    Pros

    Mayo has great benefits for all employees, way better than previous employers I've had. Generous PTO, health/dental/vision insurance, tuition reimbursement, back up daycare, sick child daycare, employees get discounts at several businesses around town, etc.

    Cons

    My particular position is a call center which is very reptitious and gets old fast.

    Advice to Management

    Its hard to make any changes to the position, the position is essential to the company. Perhaps it would be nice to have more people hired to handle more of the calls.
