    I have been working at 3M full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    3M is a pretty good place to work. The company is full of some of the nicest, most intelligent and hard working people you could ever meet. The benefits and pay are better then most. The layoff risk is pretty low.

    Cons

    It is very hard to change jobs or receive significant pay raises. Benefits are not as good as they used to be. The current employee rating system is flawed with something like 70% of employees all receiving the same evaluation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is so difficult to change career paths at 3M, we need to do more to encourage risk taking in managers when it comes to hiring. Additionally, the rating system needs revamping if everyone gets a 3/5 how do you truly identify potential stars?
