    Certain Department chairs have been in their positions for 9+ years.. there is definitely benefits of having a rotational leadership culture.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    No required OT, late nights, holidays, and weekends for non ED and floor staff. Set schedule. Average PTO for hospital. Tuition assistance. FMLA benefits. Great healthcare benefits. Unmatchable high pay. Coworkers become friends and are like family.

    Cons

    Harassment and bullying from a staggering portion of management. Bosses that belittle, put down, intimidate you. Lack of opportunities for growth as no one ever quits, when they do management promotes friends over highly educated and experienced members.

    Staff terrified to report anything to HR for fear of retaliation from management. Mayo IS AWARE of bullying in the workplace but nothing has changed.

    Racists comments I've heard from coworkers about the patients is discussing and unacceptable. I've reported some of these comments to management with nothing ever being done.

    Clear signs of favoritism. Employees that should be let go are kept on due to being friends with the boss. Bosses that write up one employee for something and then ignore others that do the same.

    Advice to Management

    HR and management, start paying attention to complaints from staff about office bullying. HR, you ignoring the problem is causing us employees to lose fantastic coworkers to competing hospitals.
