    I have been working at 3M full-time (more than an year)

    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.
