I have been working at 3M full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great pay 3M has great opportunities if you are willing to move. They have plants all over the country/world. 3M club is great for the family. Semi-flexible work schedule. I feel as long as you are doing your job there is nothing to worry about.

Cons

3M is a large company with a great deal of competition when jobs open up. This makes advancement tougher if you are just starting out. Older hourly folks I speak with are less satisified than they were 15 years ago. But they are getting close to retirement so take that with a grain of salt.

    I worked at 3M as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone at 3M is very smart and committed to their work. Great sense of collaboration. People look forward to their jobs and like what they do, which creates a great atmosphere.

    Cons

    It's a very large company, so you feel very small at times. I wish it would be easier to communicate with superiors.


  2. Great professional experience, competitive salary, but cut throat environment.

    I worked at 3M full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great professional experience, competitive salary, reasonable work hours, all expenses paid travel.

    Cons

    Sketchy management, back stabbing environment, managers only look out for themselves, upper level directors and executives most often do not have a clue what is happening in their own plant(s). Travel is expected if you are an engineer and the majority of 3Mers will do time at 3M headquarters in St. Paul MN at some point in their career. Need to be willing to relocate in order to survive at 3M.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of the inner workings and details of what is really happening in your own plant(s).
