    Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Elyria, OH

    I have been working at 3M full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    3M seems to be run very fairly and is not a high stress environment that makes extraneous demands on its employees.

    Cons

    3M follows the trends of the market and as such, is not a company that offers the upper range of compensation and benefits, but is very middle-of-the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focusing on one key metric will drive a company down, but balancing all of the aspects of a company will allow it to thrive.

    I worked at 3M full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
