I worked at 3M

Pros

job security, innovation, room for growth or bi-lateral movement, overall compensation package, great opportunities to be involved in projects or perhaps travel, the more time and effort you put it the more you are rewarded.

Cons

dependent upon the manger there is quite a bit of favoritism as far as new opportunities, the performance management system is one where the company is forced to have a certain percentage of employees in the unsatisfactory area, a certain percentage in the performing satisfactorily, and the exceeding requirements. I personally, did not feel it was a fair system when the same favored employee would always get the limited exceeding requirements, if made others not want to put forth effort because they knew it would not be recognized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the performance management system as you have done so often in past years.

    I have been working at 3M

    Pros

    Given a lot of responsibility
    Challenging work
    Management listens to your ideas for improvement
    I work with great people
    I don't fear losing my job tomorrow
    Good benefit/compensation package
    Employees can purchase stock at a 15% discount
    401K is dollar for dollar company match up to 6% of salary

    Cons

    Large company means a lot of red tape and difficulty getting improvements implemented
    Long hours at times - management doesn't really focus very much on work/life balance
    Leadership is sub par in my experience
    Lack of a feeling like I'm working with a TEAM
    Lot of complaining about problems but not much effort is put forth to solve them... issues are talked about but not acted on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us excited to work in a TEAM, spell out the vision of the organization and review it consistently.
    Foster more of an environment of accountability and ownership.
    Somehow get the employees EXCITED about their work, people are just coming into work to put in the time... this could be because they are overworked and spend too much time putting out fires instead of implementing improvements.
