  • Health Insurance  (58 comments)

    “Seems normal for such a huge company with a large risk pool. Healthy single non-utilizer, you're looking at $48/mo.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (42 comments)

    “Excellent. You can basically take whatever you want as long as you get your work done, though I imagine this varies by department and manager.”

  • 401K Plan  (38 comments)

    “3% no matter what, then dollar for dollar match up to 5%. So if you contribute $0, you still get 3% of your salary tucked away; if you contribute...”

    There is a performance incentive paid out based on performance of your division. If the division outperforms, the pay out increases.

    Best: Insurance, 401k matching is above average, stock purchase discount Worst: Vacation could be better/more.

    The 401K in the HIS division (it may vary by division) is excellent: 3% is given whether you contribute or not. Then they match you 100% up to 5%--so you can get 8% match IF you put in 5% yourself. If you put in 0% yourself, you still get 3% match. That is hard to beat. I'm looking at potentially leaving for a $15k increase and honestly, it's not worth it if I'm going somewhere that gives only a 4% 401k match. Health insurance is fine but I'm a zero utilizer so have no idea how it is if you are someone who needs to access the system. Vacation is great--ask for 3 weeks to start and they will give it to you. You get 12 holidays, 8 of which are dictated (like July 4th, etc.) and then 4 floating holidays. Sick days are totally unlimited. The benefits package over all is hard to beat. Salary is okay--they are pretty much in the middle--they won't under pay you but you can probably command more elsewhere. 3M makes it up on the benefits.

    Although I don't have any other corporate experience in which to compare against, the benefits package seems to be excellent at 3M.

    The 401k package is fantastic (at least in the HIS division). We get 8% matching--it's a 5% match if you contribute 5% and then an additional 3%, regardless of whether or not you contribute. The maternity/paternity leave is at the top of the industry (I think people are getting 6 weeks off), tuition reimbursement leaves a lot to be desired (only $1500 for a company built on ideas?), but the time off and the work flexibility cannot be matched.

    Health insurance through Health Partners. 5% 401K match. Discounted stock purchase.

    Great 401K match and Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Vacation accrual and benefits start day one

    Most are best. Stock options are way lower other players
