I currently work for 3M but have applied for an HR Manager (potentially VP) position at a local community bank. Any insights into salary expectations for a HR Manager/VP position at a midwestern bank employing approximately 100 people? I'm bracing for it to be quite a bit less than my current salary.
The Work-Life Bowl
Anyone in Thermo Fisher HR? I applied for a position there (senior analyst level) using an employee referral link (senior manager level) from someone who used to work with me at 3M but has since jumped to Fisher. Curious if there is a way to check the status, put in additional work to get recognized, etc? I applied about 2 weeks ago.Thermo Fisher Scientific

Great place for growthFeb 1, 2023 - ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There is a strong belief in innovation and employees are given a lot of flexibility to make a difference. Total compensation is very good It is a collaborative environment
A large amount of overhead & meetings searching for consensus Some decision makers are too disconnected from the day to day realityContinue reading

Job flexibility work schedule called Work Your Way , good Benefits and retirement plans.
Company is going Spin-off of Health Care Business Group (HCBG) the group I work under. There is a lot of uncertainty of what that company will look like.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you enjoy being part of our team.

Good Company, Bad DirectionMay 26, 2023 - Senior Manufacturing Technology EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Fantastic people at lower levels of the organization. My teams were always supportive and collaborative. Diverse set of products and markets means always something interesting to work on.
Upper management seems lost, implementing large-scale restructuring every 1-2 years keeps people guessing about whether they'll have a job or not and how to navigate new corporate structures and systems. Benefits have slowly been eroded over the years. Employees are stuck using antiquated software and systems to do basic daily tasks, which kills productivity and require technical support frequently.Continue reading

Change is the constantMay 9, 2023 - Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Diverse product portfolios and business groups lead to a breadth of business opportunities that could allow someone to spend their entire career with one company while presenting them with experiences in a variety of markets (Consumer, Safety, Industrial, Electronics, etc.). Core Benefits are solid (Medical, Dental, Vision, etc.), but don't expect any cool perks you might find at SaaS or Consulting companies (Sports tickets, unlimited PTO, free branded merchandise/swag, networking events, Presidents club, consistent sales incentive trips).
3M has a growth problem due to its internal complexities leading to often times a poor customer experience, an indirect model that makes it difficult to measure end-user sales impact and lack of product innovation which results in pushing antiquated technology/product platforms in the market at a premium price in comparison with competition. In addition to the growth problems, multiple lawsuits loom over the company. From a sales standpoint, the variable compensation system in the U.S. is too complex. Managers and Reps are often times unable to explain it, which is a problem. Additionally, sales organizations are antiquated about their go to market strategies and how to best deploy coverage models within target markets compared to modern sales organizations traditionally found in the SaaS space with clearly delineated roles and responsibilities (BDR/SDR, AE, Sales Engineer, Customer Success, etc.).Continue reading

Good company but trending in the wrong directionMay 16, 2023 - Marketing and Business Development Manager in Saint Paul, MNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
-People are by and large very friendly, intelligent, and humble -Strong culture of work life balance -Work your way = great flexibility -Good compensation
-Executive management is cutting the legs out from under the company -Lawsuits and constant restructuring create an air of uncertainty and impact the financial performance of the company -Current trajectory means that stock options are virtually worthless and that you should expect roughly 50-60% of your expected bonusContinue reading

Can be worth itJun 1, 2023 - Production SchedulerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good working conditions, If you can move up in the company a few times, the pay is good.
3M talks a lot about how they care for the people that work for them but actions speak louder than words. Their management only stays for approximately 3 years, so your boss usually doesn't even find out what you do. But at least if your boss is useless, you don't have to put up with them long.Continue reading

OK companyMay 28, 2023 - Senior Specialist in Maplewood, MNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
competitive pay and benefits. ability to work remotely part of the time is great especially during the cold and snowy days in winter.
The new 3M is sadly the place where "innovation goes to die". Good ideas are either killed or appropriated by the bosses and credited to one of their cronies. Boot licking seems the only qualification you need to advance your career. Nepotism, cronyism and favoritism are rampant.Continue reading
