    I have been working at 3M full-time (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.
