Pros

Lots of training and support. First year has 5 weeks of training at headquarters and numerous training sessions at the manufacturiing site. Very professional and welcoming atmosphere. Lots of different products in a lot of industries. If you like being exposed to many different markets with in one company, 3M will be a good fit. Innovation and learning is an empathesis in the culture with Lean Six Sigma being a core methodology in the manufacturing side.

Cons

The usual stuff that comes with a large organization. 3M puts a lot into their new hires and expects a lot of them. It can be demanding and relocation is a part of the career path. If you want to stay put in one location the options for advancement will be limiting.

    Pros

    3M provides a great community network where one has the opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge from higher execs and other numerous resources without straining to do so.

    Cons

    Career paths can tend to be confusing because there is no example of a type of direction you can take in the company because they allow you to move around the company where you fit best. This can be both good and bad.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to be able to provide proper career counseling, when available, to those seeking career guidance.
