Poor management in SAP BASIS

Former Employee - SAP Basis Administrator in Maplewood, MN
Former Employee - SAP Basis Administrator in Maplewood, MN

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.

    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.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Elyria, OH
    Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Elyria, OH

    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.
