I worked at 3M full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Strong company. I had great managers and was recognized for my achievements. Really liked my career at 3M and would recommend working there to anyone. I wish I had not left to pursue an opportunity which presented itself. Took the risk, got burned. Live and learn.

Cons

Marketers tend make decisions which can dramatically jeopardize a sales reps market share. The marketing people seem to make a change then move on to another marketing job in another division or department every two years and never see or suffer the consequences of their decisions. Sales people are left to scramble and save face with customers. Not a major issue, but it was frustrating at times. Experienced sales people are on their way out and too many college kids are taking their place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep quality sales people with experience and product knowledge. More cheap feet on the street is not a good solution. Quality over quantity.

    Pros

    The people are great. Variety of job opportunities.

    Cons

    Management sometimes didn't have a clue on how things got done nor were some of them interested in learning. They were more interested in looking good for their next job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the small person that works hard everyday so you can look good to others above you!
