    3M is really strong in the areas of Pay, products and compensation. 3M employees are treated very well and have job security. Also there is a significant work life balance.

    The major cons for 3M are more of location issue in regards to the weather. Although 3M is working to improve diversity is still an issue in regards to St Paul.

    The advice i would have for leadership is that they should Increase the diversity of 3M's workforce to increase retention of minorities.
