    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Monrovia, CA

    I worked at 3M full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at 3M full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Technology company with a fascinating and constantly-evolving product line
    Smart employees who are creative problem solvers
    Excellent work-life balance, as 3M wants you to be able to at least consider spending your entire career there
    Potential for international travel and assigments

    Cons

    There can be a lot of bureaucracy, as with any large multi-national company
    Loyalty to their employees sometimes extends too far, and so they are very reluctant to fire low-performers
    Don't always seem to value experience outside 3M
