    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good for this area but benefits are on the down slide, Like how they are willing to help out the community.

    Cons

    They don't follow their own policies unless it benefits them. Management in each area is allowed to do things their own way whatever will help them climb the ladder regardless of impact on employees or the company there is no consistency .I am a 3m employee but the other comment about how they treat contract temp employees are correct, they have no regard for them at all they are only there to keep company from paying out benefits. In the end it hurt s them ,us and especially the company because of high turnover quality of our products suffers and plant moral is low.
    Shifts and required overtime make family life diffecult
    attendence policies make this even worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your plant management follows each plants policies,it'snot fair to expect employees to follow them when management doesn't Try to limit number of contract make the good ones 3m employees quicker.The high turnover lower quality and productivity you are not saving as much money as your experts make you believe.Don't try to save money by cutting benefits loyalty to the company is dropping to keep and attract quality employees you need to offer benefits as they have been,cutting them will lose employees.
