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

    Pros

    Strong innovation culture; continual stream of internal opportunities; financial stability; very diverse set of offerings; very deliberate succession planning process; senior management very accessible and engaged

    Cons

    Large companies tend to move slowly; international/ex-pat opportunities seem to be less and less over time due to cost; culture with bias toward "lifers" can make breaking in a bit difficult for mid-career outsiders

    Former Employee - Laboratory Technician  in  Saint Paul, MN
    Former Employee - Laboratory Technician in Saint Paul, MN

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

    Pros

    One thing I noticed is that once people get into 3M, it is rare that they leave. That is definitely a good sign of a good company to work for.

    Cons

    One negative thing is applying can be difficult. You submit your resume into its online system, and you never know when you will hear back if at all. More feedback in the application process would be helpful
