Pros

Very innovative company, dedicated to identifying and solving consumer/industrial needs and successfully monetizing them; a very strong, unique organizational culture

Cons

Very "old" and less progressive organizational culture, which makes the company less attractive to younger professionals; many levels of bureaucracy slow down many decisions

Advice to Management

While I respect many things about the company, it seems to have gotten "comfortable" in its success. In order to continue to thrive, the company should take advantage of its many core technologies, integrate them, and update its IT infrastructure and communications processes.

    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
