    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, supportive management, excellent work-life balance initiatives like free wellness seminars and classes and on-site workout facility, tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Sometimes not critical enough of long-time employees whose productivity has relaxed. Low morale among some teams due to management not being fair. 24 hour on-call rotation expected in many positions. Unwillingness to hire part-time employees. The waiting list for an on-site parking spot is 12.5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Mayo Clinic could greatly expand the qualifications and diversity of its I.T. work force if part-time and flexible positions, including job-sharing positions were posted. Mayo Clinic is rated high when it comes to being a flexible work-place, but this seems to apply only to physicians, nurses, and researchers. When it comes to I.T., the jobs listed are all full time, many requiring a 24-hour on-call rotation. This is daunting for many employees with families. It seems the accepted path is to be hired in at full-time, prove oneself, then ask for a reduction to part-time. Usually, the part-time employees prove themselves to be just as productive as the full-time ones, and they are happier due to the flexibility afforded for work-life balance. It would be great to see I.T. employees considered to be hired in on a part-time or supplemental basis.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Mayo Clinic is a world renown leader in healthcare - as such, there is a great deal of professional prestige that accompanies any role at Mayo.

    The stability of the organization and it's low turnover are comforting assurances for employees with family commitments or who simply desire stability.

    The Mayo pay ranges are surprisingly competitive and the benefits, while diminished from the early 2000's, are still significant.

    Cons

    For a creative professional, the lack of creative latitude due to tight branding restrictions and corporate standards can be stifling.

    For top-level creative endeavors such as campaigns, rebranding initiatives and the branding of new offerings, Mayo has a history of going to outside resources before looking internally.

    While upheld for medical innovation, there is a prevalent and lesser-known culture of resistance to change, new ideas and new ways of conducting business. For those in creative roles, this becomes evident in the day-to-day policy-laden parameters of the work and the committee structure for approvals.
