Pretty Good Place

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was a nurse for 5 years and it had its ups and downs. However, with working in multiple hospitals over the years Mayo Clinic is a pretty good place. I had many great coworkers and Management was okay. The patient to staff ratio was hard at times.

Workplace where I was proud of our mission and reputation.

What is the best part of working at the company?Dependable leadership that lives the values of the company.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?High expectations that keep you on your toes. This results in you being a better employee and Mayo being a better company.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Depends on the department. Overall a company where people take pride in their work and strive to bring integrity to their work. Mayo is a company I was proud to work for and am still a patient thereWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Depends on the role and the day

Anesthesia Tech

Management can be bad depending on where you are at (but on the other hand management can be really great). always short staffed, so people burnout fastand turnover is high.

Positive workplace, hard to advance

A positive and collaborative work environment. I only left because there was no advancement opportunities and I was looking to continue to grow my career

Loyalty and excellence do not matter in the end

Mayo has changed over the years. Patients are not the center of the care. There are shady practices and procedures on patients that should not have them done but no one will stand up anymore and say when enough is enough. So much suffering. Dying with dignity is rare…


Benefits and pay


Work hours, stress, management does not care

I love my job. Great work life balance and amazing coworkers. Could not ask for a better environment or team members to best serve the needs of our patients. Great benefits, fair compensation, no complaints!

Staff are supportive

The staff that I worked with were extremely supportive, and it felt like a family. This was my first job, and I am so grateful for the knowledge I have received from my position to help me as I transition to an RN.

Overall good

Management is great and work really hard to establish a healthy work like balance. It is WFH which is a huge plus. However it is a call center so there are ups and downs to be expected

Ready for a change

Good entry level position for someone with a science degree. Put in a few years and add it to the resume. Management isn’t great, nothing changes. Average annual raises.

Not too shabby

Can’t complain too much. The pay is decent but benefits aren’t. The health insurance is based on tiers and even then it’s not great insurance. Incentives aren’t to die for and they offer no tuition assistance unless you’re going to one of the schools they partner with (which isn’t many)

Great entry level job

I do enjoy working at Mayo Clinic however it can be difficult with life and work balance. The pay is decent for what the job entails. Using this job as a stepping stone since I’m going to school in the medical field. Having a pension within a hospital/ clinic is very rare to find.

Not all it’s cracked up to be.

Nice equipment that actually functions; that’s about the only plus. Also nice patient population and beautiful facility. Poor management and lack of collegiality in the ED. If you’re not in the clique, you will have the worst assignment and no help, every shift - guaranteed. Bullying is pervasive in the ED; management is aware and does nothing about it, because management is part of it.

Very discouraging and eye opening to the lack of empathy towards patients

What is the best part of working at the company?Nothing, started out good then went downhill fast. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Dealing with management, lack of adequate staffing, the acceptance of incompetent employees by management. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Incompetent staff validated and competent employees punished What is a typical day like for you at the company?Short staffed. More RN pleasing than patient centered

Great environment, not so great for disabled folks!

I worked as a patient care tech on the medical/surgical unit on the Jacksonville, FL unit for about a year. Extensive training, great work environment, supportive management.. in terms of my workload I felt supported by my superiors and all of my coworkers. A team environment is strongly pushed and for the most part everyone works well as a team. Understaffing was a major problem (post COVID issues, so I heard) so the job wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. They also offer benefits with part time work which was HUGE for me.All this being said: I am chronically ill and from the beginning and never received any information on how to request ADA accommodations or who to talk to. When I started I spoke with my initial manager (who was replaced shortly after I was hired) about my health issues and asked about what would happen if I had an unexpected flare. Basically, she told me I was out of luck. Mayo allows 9 ‘occurrences’ per year (any kind of absence for up to 3 consecutive days in a row I believe) and you’re fired on the tenth one. No matter if you have an emergency.. there are no exceptions. The timeline is also sped up for the first 6 months so you better hope nothing goes wrong on the probationary period.I wasn’t able to get any assistance with my issues for months, and only got things resolved after speaking about it with another chronically ill employee. None of my managers had any contact info or knew the process. I just got lucky. After meeting with the disability coordinator I was allowed intermittent leave which essentially excused an absence if it was due to - 


Competitive benefits, annual raise, positive work environment, company support, non-discrimination, paid continuing education opportunities


Extremely busy with little to no breaks, 12 hr nonstop shifts in nursing, inaccessibility for disabled people, inadequate staffing, overly entitled patients due to the hospital’s reputation and price

Hard to be proud to work at one of the best hospitals in the world...

Management is extremely lacking. Supervisors are power hungry and pick favorites (as most places nowadays) Aren't enough workers to do the basic care needed for patients. Pay is less than what you'd make elsewhere. The workers are very nice and seem accepting of new people. When an emergency happens then you know you have caring people to be there for you... but these people are tired and getting fed up with the mistreatment of the hospital.


Mayo clinic looks good on resumes, brilliant people, kind people


Less pay, overwhelming, overworked, hard to change for the better, lunches aren't paid, overtime, low staffing, poor management

Competitive pay, amazing leadership

I started as a new grad and they very well prepare you before you’re on your own in the nerve wrecking field of nursing. Plenty of available resources to use as a nurse, employee and patient. We get a raise every year and benefits are great!

Fun group of people to work with and a generally great atmosphere

I enjoyed helping others and believe I was treated fairly with feedback that made me want to strive to be my best. I received support when needed from other employees.


My coworkers, provided education and fair treatment


Call outs covered by staff already doing a 12 hour shift at times. Not often but it does happen.

Academic medicine

People in my role speak of the “golden handcuffs” frequently. Some things (like library, research, and publication resources abound) where others (like the organization policies and technology are so archaic). Nurse staffing is atrocious and downright unsafe. Pay and benefits haven’t kept up with the rest in the local industry. There is absolutely nothing to do in Rochester besides work, and cost of living is crazy high. Operations and physician leadership have all the control. There is active nursing disempowerment from operations and physician leadership.
