    Pros

    Pay. They let you do your job. Little micro-managing. Good sales and employee support. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    You will advance if you are willing to move and relocate. Your job is as good as your manager. Very HIGH turn-over in middle management. They make business decisions based on bottom lines without regard to employees. Rely a lot on Six Sigma and the latest "cost savings program" and sometimes completely for-go common sense. Company is SLOW to move with modern technology. It's like moving the TITANIC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your employees good job and reward them. You have GREAT people. Loosen up and get with the modern times.

    I worked at 3M full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free parking, but long walk in the cold winter; company store has discount paint brushes and other supplies.

    Cons

    Leadership by intimidation; arrogance unsupported by results; poor computing technology; archaic leadership methodologies; very old school; archaic, clunky computer system for managing contracts; one printer for a whole department of people. Everyone trying to pass on work as belonging to another commodity. Tattle-tell environment encouraged. They seem to have trouble with blue jeans on Fridays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More progressive management badly needed to inspire folks beyond the kindergarten frivolity that permeates the organization.
