Pros

Great interaction with co workers, some very good bosses, good networking, good salary and benfits packages, flexible schedule, easy to move up if able to move

Cons

Really bad performance evaluation system, trying too many purchases, need to get back to the old innovation mentality, too foxused on only six sigma

Advice to Management

Treat your middle management better, remember your roots of innovation, let your managers make the decisions they were hired for

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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