    I have been working at 3M Purification full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As much overtime as you want for most of the year.
    Easy work to do, but Is repetitive. Simplicity in manufacturing.

    Cons

    Horrible management. You can tell them a problem and the solution and they won't do anything. Pretty lazy. Management is always right, won't open their eyes to see things any other way. This is a very racist environment, blacks people are treated horribly. (I'm white) In my entire life this is hands down the worst job I have ever held, I can't wait to move on and hope I don't smash my head into a wall before I do. This job is nothing but frustration. Numbers matter to management, and they accept no excuses.

    I worked at 3M Purification (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and for. Company provided good compensation and benefits. Self willingness to provide flexibility in work load will allow diversity, growth and compensation improvements.

    Cons

    Since acquisition, upper management focus on development and launching of new innovative products, lost focus on maintaining existing products, foundation of its success.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and $$ on improving existing production lines.

    Pros

    Great benefits, room for advancement and relocation.

    Cons

    You will be a spec of dust in the 3M universe. Your effort and dedication will not be noticed and you will always be expendable. They will buy your company, acquire the technology and then close it out.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize accomplishments and hard work, the people are what makes a company not the financial gain . The success in capital gain comes from the hard work of your employees.
