    I worked at 3M full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employee stock purchase program and a very clear path to promotion. The company plays in so many industries that given enough time you can work almost anywhere, geographically and professionally.

    Cons

    The salaries are not very competitive in higher paying regions outside the corporate HQ. It's a very large company and it feels like that. Most of what they do has "corporate" written all over it and they don't shy from it. Company HQ are in a less than glamorous city and although they try to update some parts of the campus, most of it has a very dreary feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize individual talent with money and unique company perks.
