    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Saint Paul, MN

    I worked at 3M full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good investment in the business
    Strong management in the Divisions and at the executive level
    Great, innovative products customers want (strong NPI process)
    Great peer and management collaboration, team/family environment
    Nice opportunities for networking and career change and/or advancement
    Significant global business and opportunities to work with the international team

    Cons

    Marketing and Product Management positions are combined
    More of a Lab/Mfg Company, Marketing is not a core strength
    Centralized Decision Making at the Division Level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing departments are understaffed which can burn out employees and reduce the qulity of the marketing work.

    I have been working at 3M as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, great people to work with

    Cons

    If you are working through a contract agency (Pace, Volt, Aerotek) you will likely be paid much less than you should be (NEGOTIATE HARD WITH THEM!), benefits and healthcare are minimal (Pace), definitely a disconnect between 3M culture and contract agency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people on who are under contract and have shown that they are dedicated, hardworking, deserving employees. Be more willing to take risks and make long term investments on people.
