More Pros and Cons

  1. "Incredible Opportunity"

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

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule, benefits are amazing, travel is all-expenses paid, company well known in the industry and has great reputation, management seems great but that's a per team basis

    Cons

    This position is lonely. Don't expect to be as involved in the culture of the company. Must constantly be self motivated; working from home can be very distracting. Sales compensation structure crumbled while undergoing system changes so in many divisions all the reps are paid on the same numbers (this won't likely change until 2019).

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a better compensation metric while undergoing changes. Try to get the reps involved in the culture of the company. Continue to provide sales tips and tricks as well as trainings; the ones we've had have been great.
