Pros

3M offers great training opportunities, excellent benefits and variety when it comes to side projects. The business units, for the most part, appreciated working with my dept.

Cons

More politics there than at other companies comparable in size.

    I worked at 3M

    Pros

    The location I was at definitely had very good company culture, and we were working on an innovative product that changed the industry.

    Cons

    3M has some typical large company issues. For example, needed 3 or 4 level of approval for a new hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's would be great if the site management could enjoy more self-governing, especially on technical issues that higher level management don't have much clue.

    Total disregard for personal lives. Mandatory overtime is the norm. It is very common to work 30 days in a row.

    I have been working at 3M full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    a chance for a lot of overtime, and a chance to earn a fair, competitive salary.

    Cons

    you feel like a slave. I worked four months in a row with a total of four days off work. Their approach is: if you don't do it, we'll find someone who will. You might as well give up any family, life, or happiness if you work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember these are human beings working for you! Look around, people are limping, sore, beaten, and you're lucky you aren't imprisoned for inhumane treatment.
