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

    Pros

    Great workplace, friendly people, quality of management varies unit-to-unit, 1:1-2 ICU ratio, 1:2-3 PCU ratio, 1:3-4 floor ratio, pay is excellent compared to national average when factoring in living cost, excellent PTO accrual

    Cons

    Get floated when your unit is overstaffed, a few units are crazy busy while most are reasonable and some are nice, cold climate, not much to do in town

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I have no problems with management

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing resources for new grads and experienced nurses. Great teamwork environment, physicians are respectful of nursing staff and value nursing input to patient conditions.

    Cons

    Sleepy town and high state income taxes. Difficult place to live for college new grad and/or single status. Entertainment is very family oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Need retention bonuses and continuous specialty certification incentives not just one time exam reimbursement, shift differentials need to be more competitive.

    Pros

    Awesome company, great work environment, great people, great culture. It felt great to work towards improving medical care for different patients.

    I don't have any complaints about working at Mayo. As you can read in the Pro's above, I had a great time working at the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Mayo culture alive. It felt good to be at a place that strives to be better. I would love to return to the clinic someday.

    Pros

    Many opportunities, innovative care approach, generally very helpful and kind staff

    Cons

    Management, staff tend to form cliques or groups, parking and a focus on doing whatever is best and fastest for the company in resolving issues or problems.

    Advice to Management

    Try to stay away from the big corporation approach for handling situations

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with excellent doctors, nurses, and other allied health staff. Patient needs definitely come first in my department. Nice employee gym.

    Cons

    Very short-staffed, which can hurt patient care. Supervision is lacking, which causes a lot of issues. Parking situation is not ideal - especially in the winter.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers, friends, education, resume builder, PTO, staffing, resources, hours available, pay

    Cons

    Can't schedule vacations because you have to request months in advance and then the schedule is posted only 2 weeks before, sometimes later, so you can't book anything like a cruise or airline travel. If I could shout on a mountaintop these words, to reiterate some of the other reviews on here about corporate hospitals, mark my words now: It's just another hospital!!!! It's hospital inpatient nursing! Nothing special about this place at all, not from the RN's perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Care about nurses as much as you care about patients (your product). Better ingredients, better pizza! Offer better health insurance with lower deductibles and OOP maxs, and lower coinsurance %.
