    I have been working at 3M HIS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, avg/above avg wage, above avg benefit package, large corp/diverse products/markets

    Cons

    Frequent changes in management Past 6 yrs I've had 4 managers & had no manager for 6mths which is the catalyst for a whole host of issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See #1 Con. Create standard methods/workflows rather than each little group re-inventing the wheel over and over - we need to tap into the silo and learn from our team members and share business practices. Lastly, invest in enterprise IT solution that we can use to manage our projects, products, and people.

    Some teams have too many "stuck" employees who create a stagnant environment.

    I have been working at 3M HIS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good pay, good commute, 3M as a whole believes in innovation and integrity and tries to encourage these concepts throughout the company. I hear that some teams are good to work on.

    Cons

    Some teams are very stuck in doing things "as they've always done it." You will see other reviewers saying this too. If you have new ideas, you will probably be ignored and shunned by your team mates, especially if they are run by employees who have been there over twenty years. The average time people are employed at 3M is 22 years. This is not something to be proud of because a lot of those people have been in the same job all that time and they don't grow as a person or in their skillsets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move people around. No one should be on the same team in the same job for more than ten years. People who are "stuck" cause others to be stuck. It affects the morale of the team.

    I have been working at 3M HIS full-time

    Pros

    Great growing opportunity within a Global company
    Great benefits and discount on 3M products (3M makes almost everything)
    Great team environment with managers who will work with you with your needs.
    Employee stock option s give you ability to save faster.

    Cons

    Dealing with clients can be frustrating.
    Changes in support structure on the horizon and appears to be kick back from other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More time for training.

    Former Employee - SQL Engineer in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at 3M HIS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The salary was average\ok I have very little nice things to say of this company especially for woman. Please stay away from here.

    Cons

    The management is all men, run by men, fitting men's needs. As a woman I was pushed out within 3 months because I have kids and needed a set schedule. They do not work with people who have families. I would not waste my time here if you are a woman unless you want to be the office gopher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove middle management NOW and replace with a staff that is younger and more creative. Who probably has not been raised with gender bias.

    Pros

    An environment that fosters creativity and curiosity, and gives you the opportunity to learn at a fast pace and solve very interesting problems.

    Cons

    Not many, but I would say HIS is part a large organization which means: career growth happens at a slower rate, a lot of policies and procedures in place.

    Pros

    Challenging work, the opportunity to learn a lot of information about the industry.

    Cons

    Learned through mistakes, with objectives and not training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    President asked why do people leave and do well? The only way to go is up. Incorporate some type of SW/HW integration quality standard measures to avoid the kpi's.
