Staff exceptional and mostly supportive, BUT...
Endoscopy Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 10, 2016
Mayo touts its reputation for attracting the best and the brightest, but plays down the covert favortism and competitiveness. Location, location, and weather, with the exception of summer months, are among the biggest pro draws. Cons can be the work environment, which, often is emotionally distressing. The extrodinarily high work volume condensed into a narrow window isnt uncommon here or elsewhere, but, can be overwelming due to the lack of appreciation demonstrated by unit leadership members. Leadership has nurtured this non unified culture without regard for the lack of trust among its nursing staff, but more for the control it yeilds. Over time demoralizing actions, lack of respect from leadership, fear, and promotions based on subjection take their toll on some very exceptionsl healthcare providers. Likely, the most detrimental cause and effect of not obtaining Magnet status in Arizona. Educational opportunities available, and advancements are doled out by leadership regularly, without consideration to talent and work ethic, rather advancement opportunities are based on subjective favoritism. When staff comply with the high demands to meet these expectations, they are then sent home early as a reward. Consequenyly, monetary compensation is effectively reduced in favor of managerial bonuses and rewards. Nursing to patient care ratios are never in favor of the staff. Non license personnel often practice outside their scope and nurses are not supported when reporting these gaps in the chain of command, but are reminded constantly of the chain of responsibility.
