I worked at 3M as an intern for more than a year

Pros

Worked as technical aide (full time summer, part time during school). Provides a great opportunity for someone inexperienced with industry, research and design, to see how a global company functions. Good job placement if you stay there until you graduate.

Cons

Your duties will be very boring, and uninteresting, but for a college student, the pay is reasonable. You are a very small piece of a large organization, and you are the bottom of the bottom, even if you display you are smart enough to take on more roles, the corporate bureaucracy won't allow it.

    I have been working at 3M full-time for 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.
