I have been working at 3M full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

you do not have to work overtime. If their is a time that your needed you can always ask someone to work for you. As along as you keep your lead and supervisor informed. Supervisor has to approve of the change first.

Cons

too many chiefs and not enough indians. New hires must question their Trainer, if too many people are giving you different process methods

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead by example. New hires learn from their Leaders and behave like their Leaders.

    I worked at 3M as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Did an excellent job of exposing me to the entire company and not just those who I would work with.

    Cons

    It was on the low end of salaries for internships in my major and the project you have is very dependent on your advisor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all interns have the opportunity to set up informational meetings with others throughout the company
