Overall Reviews at Mayo Clinic
one of the better healthcare organizations to work for
work life balance is great, culture is pretty good overall. Unfortunately furloughs did take place but everyone was brought back. Not always impressed with middle and upper leadership skills but they usually do the best that they can.
Prosgood work life balance
Conseasy to get complacent and do the minimum
I enjoyed working at Mayo Clinic and overall feel like they look out for their employee's. However, management could be looked at and addressed at the lower end of the management scale.
Team Players, Productive & Fun
I was a Software QA Testing Consultant, working remotely with on-site iteration planning sessions. My team was very productive in following Agile & Scrum methodologies. Onboarding at office was a little tough in getting workstation setup. I moved to another state during contract & was allowed to stay on project remotel, attending iteration planning remotely. It was a fun testing role, had access to appropriate test tools, and had great team to work with. The only thing I was surprised about was one team lead's attitude about consultants working remotely - she had experience where consultants were charging hours but didn't actually do the work. She assumed I would do the same, so at times she was hard to communicate with. But I transferred my system knowledge to her team & proved her wrong about my work ethic and finished my contract as scheduled.
ProsGreat Pay, Fun, Latest Testing Software in-house, mostly Professional team players, Life/Work Balance was great, Able to work remotely.
Consone team lead's assumption I had poor work ethic just because I was consultant
Mayo is a good place to work
Nice place to work and grow and retire. very good benefits. flexible hours. Friendly managers and coworkers. many opportunities to improve skills and educations.
Mayo cares about its employees and has a great work environment
Laboratory management was present for leadership, but respected our technical abilities, and did not have to micromanage employees. My coworkers were my work family, and shifts were busy but enjoyable.
Excellent opportunity to give back to others
While working at the Mayo Clinic the organization stressed purpose and meaning for providing your best giving back to others through your work. It was very fulfilling to work for an organization that was truly a place that took care of others.
Really nice place to work great facilities. Teamwork is strongly pushed. Always making improvements to the campus. Plenty learning opportunities throughout the year.
ProsFree lunches, good benefits
Facilitate patient visits and support the health care provider by anticipating and responding to patient needs and request of the health care tea
It was fullfilling to help patients who need help with their serious medical needs. Could be stressful at times, but the best part of the day was hearing a patient say "thank you so much for listening to me and assisting me when I needed it the most."
Not worthy it
It just depends on what you are looking for in a company. I am looking for flexibility and a straight answer and honesty. If that is you, this is not the place for you.
ProsThe patients always come first and that matters
ConsEmployees get the short end of the stick
Great place to work
I love working for Mayo. My job is rewarding, and there are opportunities for advancement. I feel valued and supported as an employee and team member. The pay and benefits are great, and I am proud to be a part of such a well-known and respected organization.
