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

Pros

Fantastic campus and professional work community.
Team environment and everyone gets their job done - no whiners.
Great benefits - Medical, Health, Vacation, etc.

Cons

Some jobs can include conference calls outside of normal work hours.
May include domestic / international travel (could also be a pro for personal / professional development).
Sometimes have to wear too many "hats" due to lack of resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more cognizant of employee career development. Being "too" busy not only hinders employee development, but also the company.

    I worked at 3M full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company really cares about their employees but 3M expects a lot from their employees.

    Cons

    The hours are not ideal, the three shifts are not ideal; they ruin your entire day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a little more structured and don't shrug rules off as not necessary or needed to be followed.

    3M and Volt Services collaborate to line each others' pockets while shortchanging Permatemp contingent workers.

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Maplewood, MN

    I have been working at 3M as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Non-management employees are friendly, but clueless to situation. Great opportunity to learn first-hand about the people and culture of India.

    Cons

    Contingent workers are treated as second-class, or interchangeable pieces. The contracts negotiated with Volt have resulted in deteriorating compensation (paid vacation eliminated, paid holiday qualification nearly impossible). Forced 60-day "break" every 3 years for administrative and production workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you employ a "temporary" worker in a position for ten years, it's time to hire them.
