I have been working at 3M full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

3M is a pretty good place to work. The company is full of some of the nicest, most intelligent and hard working people you could ever meet. The benefits and pay are better then most. The layoff risk is pretty low.

Cons

It is very hard to change jobs or receive significant pay raises. Benefits are not as good as they used to be. The current employee rating system is flawed with something like 70% of employees all receiving the same evaluation.

Advice to Management

It is so difficult to change career paths at 3M, we need to do more to encourage risk taking in managers when it comes to hiring. Additionally, the rating system needs revamping if everyone gets a 3/5 how do you truly identify potential stars?

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

    Pros

    This company has a high level of fiscal stability, due to the fact that its a subsidiary of 3M.
    The pay is on target with pay provided by this companies peers in the industry.

    Cons

    The personnel that have been here for ten years or more (80%of all employees) have established a "good ol' boy" type network. The management does not address issues with safety, personnel, or process, instead they throw another S.O.P. at the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Become more hands on with the employees, and attempt to bridge the disconnect.
