I have been working at 3M as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

3M has a very welcoming culture that fosters collaboration, innovation and teamwork. The employess are very welcoming and professional. I feel that my talents are valued and I am given opportuinites to demonstrate my skills and learn new things.

Cons

It seems that there are a large number of contract employees and getting hired permanently may take some time (possibly several years, or not at all).
