I worked at 3M part-time (more than an year)

Pros

I worked as a technical aide while in college. The work times were extremely flexible, which may depend on supervisor, but i'm sure most are flexible with students.
Good pay.

Cons

I cant think of any.

    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.

    I worked at 3M as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employees say benefits are great.

    Cons

    Management did not work well with basis team members or manage efficiently. Some do very little work and a few work long hours and do many things. Contractors treated poorly. No dedicated desk for contractors. Manager and leads are not approachable. Manager and leads don't pass information to team. 3M employees who do not have basis skills and are new to position can get away with sitting at their desks and doing little work because they have worked at 3M for many years.
