The name on the resume is worthwhile but not a happy place to work.

I worked at 3M

Pros

The internship program is good and they are actively working to make it better. They have a lot of services for employees. The benefits are changing and while not as good as they once were they are still not bad.

Cons

Too big, you are just a number. Stifling atmosphere. People are just counting their time to retirement. Not an upbeat place to work. Not enough variety in duties, everything is very compartmentalized. Too much emphasis on degrees and where they came from.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lighten up, take off the starched collars and interact with the employees, you might find some great hidden talent. While still a solid company they are overlooking some great people.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for future growth and career development. Respect given by management, and ability to work to your potential. Team work and great leadership.

    Cons

    3M is a very large company and can sometimes make it harder to be noticed and recognized for your efforts by upper level management. However, strong effort is made to recognize those who contribute greatly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the hiring process sometimes degree titles should be overlooked in cases where a degree doesn't specifically say the word "engineer". The lack of that term doesn't mean that a candidate is not qualified to be an engineer with a scientific degree with engineering background and experience. I believe too much stock is placed on the degree title and school it came from. Very strong candidates can come from small schools with great degree programs.

    Pros

    Family friendly, excellent pay, great benefits, flexible schedule of hours, good communication, good working conditions, management was very personable. A good place to work.

    Cons

    Old warehouse, needed alot of updating, could only advance so far at this location due to everyone staying until they retired!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always be open with your employees regarding the state of the company. It's good to know what's going on at the top.
