    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).

    I worked at 3M as an intern (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.
