    I have been working at 3M (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance, work out facility, good management, friendly people, job security, and probably quite a bit more.

    The work environment is very slow paced and very difficult to move up in. Hard work is not always appreciate. The acknowledgement for working 40 or 60 hrs/wk would be about the same
