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 have been working at 3M

    Pros

    The basis of the company was sound with good culture, strong professional skills, and interesting work

    Cons

    3M was very bureaucratic which slowed down our progress significantly. 3M had a lot of internal politics and infighting which lessened the value of efforts and caused churning to meet internal needs instead of focusing on the external goal. Ultimately, the direction set within 3M and the level of support for a potential winning product was the downfall of 3M Precision Optics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push beyond the projection display business even if that is the role being described by leaders at 3M.

    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.
