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

Pros

Wonderful benefits, educated and professional workforce, opportunity for advancement. Good company with great culture.

Cons

More tenured employees on past pension plan are understandably hesitant to leave (and lose their pension). For these employees, career move options are within 3M only. Many are at higher levels making it more difficult to break out of what they know. Most are knowledgable and great employees but in some cases these people ought to be moving on from what they have been doing. And can't/don't because they are tied to 3M.

Advice to Management

Manage the behavior of the above-mentioned employees.

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

    Pros

    good benefits, 401k match up to 6%, Flexibility with hours and work arrangements, good pay, amazing maternity program.

    Cons

    different managers have different ideas then 3M as a company tries to provide for balance, for example 3M is big on flexibility work from home options or 4 10s if you miss a day etc.... some managers will flat out tell you that it does not apply to you even when you know you could make it work with your job and not negatively impact your co workers.

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

    Pros

    Benefits
    The support and learning you gain from your colleagues
    Brand name gets you in the door and most customers have a strong relationship with 3M

    Cons

    Company is going through a lot of change right now.

    Easy to get lost in such a large company and have to jump through lots of hoops to obtain what you need

    Advice to Management

    Embrace your younger employees and try to relate to them more
