I worked at 3M HIS

Pros

Benefit package was good, but continually getting more expensive.
Many long-term loyal employees, although being forced out.

Cons

One of the most profitable divisions in 3M Health Care but run like it is nonprofitable. Recent layoff in November targeted lifelong employees. In need of more engineering resources, but chose to lay off several engineers to meet unrealistic revised revenue goals set by corporate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many unhappy employees working there. Actions do not match up with strategic focus.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Murray, UT

    I have been working at 3M HIS

    Pros

    - Great benefits (medical, dental, vision, 401k)
    - great and diverse people to work with
    - moving toward newer technologies
    - thorough with their numbers
    - moving toward a scrum variation

    Cons

    - hard to get in (interviewing)
    - the director had non engineer managers under him (making it his "kingdom")
    - the managers have no engineer experience, that makes it hard for them to understand (from an engineering perspective)
    - steep learning curve
    - badge in and badge out ("badging out" was a new thing for me)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having a manager with development/engineering background would be helpful.
