I worked at 3M as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Everyone at 3M is very smart and committed to their work. Great sense of collaboration. People look forward to their jobs and like what they do, which creates a great atmosphere.

Cons

It's a very large company, so you feel very small at times. I wish it would be easier to communicate with superiors.

    I worked at 3M as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked as technical aide (full time summer, part time during school). Provides a great opportunity for someone inexperienced with industry, research and design, to see how a global company functions. Good job placement if you stay there until you graduate.

    Cons

    Your duties will be very boring, and uninteresting, but for a college student, the pay is reasonable. You are a very small piece of a large organization, and you are the bottom of the bottom, even if you display you are smart enough to take on more roles, the corporate bureaucracy won't allow it.
