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

    Pros

    They offer much training and support to their staff. The pay s also a little higher then surrounding areas. I like the team spirit that the working enviroment has.

    Cons

    There is however a little bit of a higher then you addittude here. All nurses work hard, all students had to work hard to get to where they are.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more compassionate to the little people beneath you, be a little more organized.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time

    Pros

    They care about their nurses a lot. They are very much about EBP. There are many opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    They have high expectations which is a good thing. I do not have anything else to add.

    Advice to Management

    They do a good job of making sure the nurses are happy and that things are running smoothly.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The motto of the patient comes first is true! I'd say the majority of the staff enjoy their jobs at Mayo and it shows in how well we treat our patients. Sometimes we need to treat each other better though (sorry, should be under cons!). I've been an employee, a patient, and multiple family members have been patients, I'd give us a 98%, of course someone has to mess with the statistics! Seriously though, the nurses are treated with respect, the pay for I/P is much higher than ambulatory, but the cut in pay to come to Mayo from Banner was soooo worth it, two totally different companies. Love my job and my department! Education for nurses is highly valued and encouraged, most of our team are either in school for BSN or NP, or see how much we have learned, so they will be starting school once the benefits for tuition reimbursement kicks in-yes, Mayo offers that, does not cover it all, but it certainly helps! There is a ton of opportunities for growth, to be on committees, and to learn from our peers.

    Cons

    Can get clicky, what do you expect when a field has the majority of female staff.
    The management can be political, so one learns to watch their P's and Q's, our voice as nurses has been heard more in the past several years, so overall, depends on who you wind up with as your Supervisor and your OA. There is a reason why Mayo is often rated #1 hospital in many categories, we are EBP, which can frustrate newcomers since change can take time there. But I'd much rather that then just going with winging it!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback of staff, and without penalties, sometimes staff does not speak up due to fear of consequences. When we come to you with complaints, do not label us as negative nelleys or complainers, ask us how we can help improve what is going on.


  5. "A great, professional experience."

    Pros

    To be apart of one of the best hospitals in the country and to have great staff helping those in need.

    Cons

    Very competitive and hard to get a job here. You need to have a higher level of experience than most. But it’s a great opportunity for those who want to have the best experience In the medical field.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Great company to work for as a clinician. All clinicians not only work in patient care but also research, quality improvement and other area. Good benefits, especially retirement if you are there long term. Patients would often say to me "everyone is so nice here." There is an overall culture of professionalism and compassion.

    Cons

    Progress can happen slowly as the company is so big. New hires beware it may take months to start after you are actually hired.

    Pros

    A good place to be if you are there looking to just get by and waiting for retirement.

    Cons

    It isn't a place to grow a career. Once Mayo have you, they are focusing on the next person to hire to fill the promotional job that they were dangling in front of you for the last 2-5 years. They sing you a song about career development and career opportunities to get you to do work above your pay grade. Mayo doesn't believe in promotions, they only fill vacancies. There are no incentive to work hard. So how do you get promoted you ask? Work on your soft skills. Learn how to suck up. Learn to appear busy. The phrase "fake it until you make it" couldn't be more true for this company. The company does not correct or fire anyone; they just pass them along

    Advice to Management

    Sit down and listen to your front line employees. The ones that are doing the work. Sitting up top gets shaky when the people at the bottoms starts to crumble.

    Great benefits. The purpose of the position is meaningful.

    There in the process of restructuring the hospital, mental unit and substance abuse treatment center. The moral is very low. There’s a lack of trust in leadership.
