Featured Review

Current Employee - Director Speech Technology

I have been working at 3M full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Surprisingly agile for such a large company. Able to listen. Great team, both in Pittsburgh and at 3M HIS - also on the corporate level where I had interactions. Health plan got better through... acquisition by 3M. The general feeling is that they really care about their employees and try to do the right thing.

Cons

3M is a BIG company. There is, by necessity, more administrative overhead than for small companies. Acquisitions and mergers are always a bit rough, so it's hard to judge even 11 month in. But they... managed to keep disruptions to a minimum while actually making progress on integration. Integration goes both ways, which is always nice to see.

Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer

I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Excellent benefits and good management stile. No longer has many jobs in OK.

Cons

outsourced our entire job process and most of those in OKC were laid off.

Advice to Management

Could use a little bit more of a older management that is less inclined to be played by the staff.
