Pros

Pay and benefits at or above comparible companies in the area. Good health benefits. 3M is a big company so the opportunity to work in new areas is a big plus. New pay system encourages employee performance

Cons

Slow to change. Company size sometimes inhibits project acceleration. Vacation benefits are slightly below industry standard for experience. Limited risk taking from a coporate standpoint.

Advice to Management

More decision making needs to be made at the employee level to acclerate growth.

    Pros

    Co-workers, also health & dental insurance.

    Cons

    Management was not worried about the workers, just their meetings, their own advancement and how they could micro manage that on the back's of the average worker! Company is dropping health care for retire's, when I started with them it was guaranteed for life! But just like the management, they have dropped the ball and deserted us!

    Advice to Management

    Remember the retired people who helped make you what you are today! Don't leave them out in the cold as you are doing now!
