I worked at 3M

Pros

Co-workers... And the history of 3M is amazing to learn and be a part of.

Cons

CEO and Top Management is making very foolish decisions since George Buckley joined 3M.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of Buckley and get back to valuing employees as people.

    I worked at 3M

    Pros

    Great work life balance and opportunities to assume responsibility. Excellent engineering salaried and hourly employees with dedication to the company and work ethic.

    Cons

    Management can be indicisive and can wait until the last minute to make decisions. In some divisions people were reactive instead of proactive and were focused on saving face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss the difficulties in your decision making process with your subordinates to mitigate feelings of disenfranchisement. Even though you may come to the same outcome, the organization will become more cohesive.

    I have been working at 3M

    Pros

    This used to be a great company to work for. I was proud to be a 3M employee. I was treated with respect.

    Cons

    Management has become disrespectful of employees. Wasn't there a song once that said "feel like a number"? We are no longer people to the management of 3M Ames.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, Lets keep the integrity of the 3M company. We are people, not numbers.. We want to work as a team again and not only worry about covering our own butts because be might be walked out for low productivity. Let us work together as a team again. We are no longer team players and you made us that way.
