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.
