      Patient care experience is unfound elsewhere in the world.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Exposure to complex clinical situations; nursing staff is invested in their role in patient care and advocacy. Fair compensation. Free CEU in-house.

      Cons

      Management and nursing staffing office consider nurses to be interchangeable widgets on a schedule with vacancies, constantly changing from day/night shift multiple times a week. There is no such thing as a work life balance if you are a staff nurse. There are many "staff satisfaction" surveys, though it would seem that little is done to improve the declining morale among nursing staff. Managers face punishment if they provide a reference for current or former employees for career or educational endeavors. There are few other employment options in the area outside of Mayo, resulting in submission of nursing staff in order to keep jobs. Additionally, management bends employment laws to meet the needs of the company rather than protecting the employee. HR works closely with management with the goal of moving up in the company, therefore employees are not fairly represented when issues arise. Not much opportunity to attend offered education in house that is not required for position. Management rules with an iron fist - autonomy of thought is not acceptable. Regarding receiving health care: as an employee, you are triaged to receive appointments last, often not getting an appointment with your primary provider and being told there are no appointments on the available calendar (within 12 weeks). Unfortunately, the city this company resides in is in rural Minnesota, and they are the only available provider for the 40,000 employees and their families. Sadly, the health of employees suffers and health needs are unmet due to the poor management of health resources, rationing of care. Average new nurse time at Mayo is approximately 18-22 months - meaning within a year new employees have already begun searching at other employers for positions.

      The worst work culture I've worked in.

      Nov 7, 2016 - Anonymous Employee

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Mayo collects some extremely talented staff. - "The needs of the patient come first" is the mantra. - Rochester, MN would not be what it is without the Mayo Clinic (#1 employer) - This is a good place to start your career if you are from the local area.

      Cons

      - Minnesota nice (Passive Aggressiveness) reigns supreme at the Mayo Clinic's Rochester HQ. - If you are an employee and a patient, you don't get treated like a pure patient. Cash in hand is key. - "Mayo is a transnational corporation", not a non-profit. Those words were spoken by the CIO in a 2015 department meeting, much to the surprise of the staff in attendance. Mayo is being converted into a corporation by C suite suits, where the bottom line is more important than anything else. - Cronyism is rampant in certain IT/IS support areas. Talent/potential < Years of service/carrying water for management. - If you don't drink the Kool-Aid, you will be benched. Mayo wants subservient employees, not free thinkers. - Whistle blowers are targeted and persecuted. Regardless of what you are told in Orientation, do not blow the whistle until after you have everything documented. Even then, it's best to stay anonymous until after consulting a lawyer.

      Great place to retire, not a great place to grow, especially outside Rochester MN.

      Pros

      Stability, Good pay, work life balance, benefits better than average (but getting worse quickly), horizontal movement, a very big company.

      Cons

      Saving Rochester Minnesota is the top priority at the detriment of the other smaller sites. Rochester is a city of less that 100,000 people, 40,000 of which work for Mayo. It is an anomaly and Mayo does't seem to understand their other main facilities in large metropolitan areas may be the future of the company. They are actively moving more jobs out of the other campuses to Minnesota in some strange effort to save the 150 years of heritage in the frozen wasteland that is Rochester. There is a multi billion dollar plan to make it a "Destination". I am sorry, but no one wants to be anywhere that is negative 50 degrees f. Small thinking and self preservation is strangling the once great Mayo Clinic. My 15 year IT career ended because I wanted to grow in the company, but unless I wanted to stay at the job I was in I had to move to Minnesota to be anything above a worker bee. Management and above are all being forcibly moved to Minnesota.

      Truly the best hospital in the world!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I had to relocate recently and this is the only reason I left Mayo! Hardest decision of my life! This is the best hospital in the world to work at or be a patient. Extremely professional, kind, and competent employees. The best environment for nurses to work in. Everyone respects each other and you can depend on your co workers. "Mayo nice" is a thing. If you don't have it...you won't last here! I'd trust these people with my life!

      Cons

      Rochester, MN is kind of in the middle of nowhere. And it's Minnesota so winter is endless and there's no such thing as a snow day so your going to have to plow your way to work! St. Mary's is an old hospital and a couple of the floors are a little dated, but most are being remodeled!

      Excellent institution for medical training with great benefits, but in a small city with harsh winter and little to do

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are few hospital systems with the prestige and innovation of the Mayo Clinic, so training here is a unique experience. You get to work with the world's experts in just about every medical specialty and sub-specialty. The salary is excellent in light of the low cost of living in Rochester, MN. Benefits are plentiful and the commute is easy. The culture is strongly focused on providing the best care for each patient.

      Cons

      With such a large institution, bureaucracy is inevitable. There are way too many administrators disconnected from the front line clinical care who sometimes make ill-informed decisions that negatively impact patient care and physician satisfaction, even though this is a physician-led practice on the most part. The harsh winters in Minnesota is also something to behold. The bitter cold last from November to March, and it's not uncommon to have single-digit or subzero temperatures throughout the entire January.

      Pros

      Clinical lab work here is a breeze: up to date instruments and methods, tons of specialist support, and all the Facebooking you want. Mayo subsidizes public transportation (including coach buses), which allows long-distance commuters to defray travel costs. Employees have access to world-class doctors and treatments for their own medical care.

      Cons

      As the "Bastion of Conservatism", dress codes are too rigid and out of date, especially for areas with zero patient contact. Mayo used to offer all employees free health care and a more relaxed absentee policy; over the years they have slowly tightened the screws to eliminate little perks that used to be taken for granted. Mayo is located in the bowels of Minnesota = Winter Hell.
