    Hire more people so that the goals for the year can be accomplished without running people ragged and burning people out

    I have been working at 3M HIS (More than a year)

    Pros

    stable employment, good benefits, remote work an option. people are nice and they take healthcare seriously, very easy going co workers

    Cons

    too much process, too much organizational inertia, few people in management actually know what's going on an fewer even care. they're attempts to become more inovative are more posturing than possible. These folks have to many rules. Innovation suffers

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about fostering creativity. remove barriers, articulate a clear vision, motivate people to change, most of your workforce is killing time until retirement.

    I worked at 3M HIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked for about 4 years after they bought our division in North NJ in 2004. It was a good company, when we were not under scrutiny from HQ.
    Discounted 3M products through employee store.

    Cons

    Too long ago to remember, but issues with remote management.

    I have been working at 3M HIS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Recently implemented SCRUM/AGILE practices to bring the company out of the dark ages. They are trying to implement change. Hiring left and right to initiate new thinking and ideas within the company.

    Cons

    Still have a long way to go to rid the company of bureaucratic practices that AGILE should have alleviated. This company has a long history of mire that cannot currently keep up with relevant technology changes.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring more people externally while failing to promote within is still an old 3M practice that needs to be retired. For those that have showed loyalty and motivation, career paths are few to none. Remove AIP as tied to performance, this is part of your guaranteed salary NOT a bonus, so when the company sales perform poorly, those not involved with sales do not suffer.

    Pros

    Growing fast. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Better Structure is needed to get all the technical/development teams to be together under one umbrella. That looks unified.

    Pros

    Extremely ethical, moral and honest organization. One organization you do not have to wonder are they going to be around next week. Very stable. The leadership knows what to do as far as moving the company forward.

    Cons

    The only complaint is the lack of training. When you hire new staff you have to have a training program for your new people directly tied to the programs they will be using. Training is provided towards 3M as a whole but not towards your specific product.

    Advice to Management

    Develop very specific training programs and spend the money training new staff. Not training new people and continuing to training is like buying a car and trying to drive it on three tires. You'll get there.....eventually and very, very dangerously.

    I have been working at 3M HIS full-time

    Pros

    Great people - I love the people that i get to work with. Great legacy products and expertise in our market. Strong future direction and growth opportunities both in and out of our core market.

    Cons

    The culture is improving. Leadership is starting to see that we need to invest in our people more than we have historically. Can improve prioritization of market opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the team. 3M HIS has a tendency to hire for senior roles from hiring pools outside the organization. This is because we can improve the develop and cultivate talent from within culture.

    Pros

    3M employs some of the very best people I've worked with. The sales team is excellent and filled with quality people who care about their clients.

    Cons

    Management is completely filled with 'Yes" men. Product development is atrocious and product updates seldom work for clients the first time. Introducing new products but unable to articulate why they are better than competitive products. Price points much higher than the market is willing to pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing the business by looking at a P&L and start managing the business based on what your internal and external clients need.
