I worked at 3M as an intern (more than an 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 (more than an 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 an 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.
