As in most large companies, local environment at 3M largely defines your opportunity and work climate.

Advanced Research Specialist (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

ProsI've had overall pretty positive experience with 3M. In research, you're given a lot of schedule flexibility, you feel valued and respected. Yet most research programs are quite short-term, and longer-term opportunities even those with high potential are not appreciated as much.

ConsEven if you're considered a high potential researcher as I have been throughout most of my 3M career, you have limited opportunities for growth if you're working on longer-term projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to future opportunities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
