Disheartening

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Maplewood, MN

I have been working at 3M

ProsDiversification of the company and the industries it serves. The company has a tremendous technical platform and technical staff.

Cons3M states that it supports career development. I think they would like to think that but they do not have the proper tools in place nor the execution of that phiilosphy. I believe a deeper commitment from HR to properly resource such a concept is necessary to truly walk the talk.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs better leadership development. There are pockets of good leadership but there is much that is lacking in areas as well. The culture is an oppressive culture for new people entering the organization. The statement "you need to be here 10 years before you are valued as a voice" is going to damage their ability to attract the younger work force that is needed for a company to sustain growth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
