I have been working at 3M full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I'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.

Cons

Even 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 ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to future opportunities.

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

    Pros

    This company has a high level of fiscal stability, due to the fact that its a subsidiary of 3M.
    The pay is on target with pay provided by this companies peers in the industry.

    Cons

    The personnel that have been here for ten years or more (80%of all employees) have established a "good ol' boy" type network. The management does not address issues with safety, personnel, or process, instead they throw another S.O.P. at the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more hands on with the employees, and attempt to bridge the disconnect.
