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

    Pros

    - One of the few long-established corporations truly strive for technical innovation and refuse to reduce to a commodity business.
    - Its highly diversified product portfolio contributed to good job security, especially during the late economic downturn.
    - You can always find someone who is knowledgeable in an area you are interested in. They ALWAYS offer help. I've heard this is not true in many other large companies.
    - Seminars and classes keep you fresh.
    - Good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    - The downside of diversification is that human and capital resources are stretched thin in some areas. It can be hard to get things done effectively when you don't have a critical mass.
    - Stability can mean less dynamic, but it is very different from one business section to another.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, 3M's management is doing a good job.
