Very large challenging place to work
Software Tester II (Former Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – September 13, 2018
This is a big place and it's very hard to 'get into' a stable position here, but during my time as a contractor I noted that all the employees were very proud to work at Mayo, despite any qualms they had about day-to-day operations, and they all liked their jobs.
Overwhelmingly, people here were very helpful, very knowledgeable, and incredibly hard working. My understanding is that they are also very well compensated too (I was, I felt).
That said, this is a really large, really old company and with that comes all the layers and layers of administration and organizational complexity, which is often very frustrating. If I didn't feel like any organization over a certain size is inevitably going to suffer from that, I would count it more against them.
Stable workplace, good pay, employees enjoy their jobs
Can be tough as a contractor to advance
