    I worked at 3M full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They have cool toys to work with.

    Cons

    However, they have many "educated" credentialed people, that have little practical experience. These people do not want to hear any objections to their grand plan. The plan is followed regardless of whether it is a good plan or not. Then when it comes time to actually pay vendors for what they want, senior management balks at the idea. Vendors should just give them stuff because it is 3M. This is a poor approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have so many Ph.D's. Hire people with practical experience. Not people who make up stuff
