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

    Pros

    awesome, interesting work as an intern. Can't ask for much more on the front of being treated like a full timer and getting brought in on real projects.

    Cons

    intern program definitely left something to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. The old fashioned culture won't allow you to get the technical talent that modern companies gets if you don't compete on this front.
