    I have been working at 3M full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    3M still fosters an environment of innovation and personal growth, where risk taking is often allowed in selected job functions. The laboratory is the best place to be.

    Cons

    3M HR policies over the last decade have made the compensation picture more difficult to comprehend than a Pollock abstract.

    Advice to Management

    You are entrusted with a great treasure. Please remember our roots, while reaching for the stars. Keep it simple. Our beloved "dual ladder" is falling apart, and in my view, the practice of moving the fast track into management at the expense of experience is proving to be detrimental.
