    Pros

    Great benefits, great people to work with

    Cons

    Managers need more leadership development training! More systems training and try to be more transparent when problems arise. 3M, specifically the sterilization assurance division needs to be more forthcoming to customers when failures occur and keep customers aware of potential issues with products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be advocates for employees! Go through proper management training and be team players. Offer helpful advice and try to understand products!
