I have been working at Imation full-time

Pros

*food service on-site (Lake Elmo Inn)
*casual atmosphere
*located right off 694, just north of 94

Cons

*good ole boys club
*inept employees are moved around between departments instead of terminated
*too many legacy 3M employees from spin-off are still there - they do not adapt to change well
*no tech support
*dysfunctional systems (either home grown or canned that has been so mutilated that it can't be updated with the original software)
*buy companies to grow, without understanding what the companies do or sell

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Can I advise upper-management to terminated themselves? Because that's what they all deserve. Lucas has driven this company into the ground.

    I worked at Imation as a contractor

    Pros

    strong, interesting folks and great locations.

    Cons

    corporate management is anti-technology, makes it really tough to be very innovative as a technology vendor. The CEO has no experience, in fact, in technology, has not been able to make any leadership decisions other than austerity programs for product lines that are not producing revenues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some tech-savvy executives ASAP.

    Pros

    great people, very much pro-employees. Great benefits, nice work environment and an amazing building. Everyone is very approachable.

    Cons

    "drifting" a bit. Tough portion of the market to do a turn around with market declines in key targeted areas
