I worked at 3M

Pros

Work with some very smart individuals. Excellent work/personal life balance. Very supportive and understanding management. Insight into design and patent process.

Cons

I didn't find it particularly stimulating to focus on a small subset of one particular project, and the work (while applicable to what I had learned and fundamentally interesting) was somewhat boring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a great intern program set up, it gives people excellent insight into what it is like to work for your company. It just wasn't for me.

    I worked at 3M

    Pros

    Good benefits, profit sharing, 401k matching and stock purchase options

    Cons

    lack of learning and growth opportunities in locations apart from their HQ in minnesota.
    Boring job, poor management. If you cannot move to corporate, you cannot move up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees like they are not human beings. Be respectful of ideas from subordinates and keep an open line of communication.

    Pros

    A key advantage to working at 3M is the ability to seek out career growth opportunities across the wide range of diverse businesses. This means you can take your career in a new direction without having to change companies.

    Cons

    Growing international business presence demands a more global workforce, so promotions and job security may be less in the future in U.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget people are the company's greatest asset--take care of them.
