I have been working at 3M as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Good working environment, great people to work with

Cons

If you are working through a contract agency (Pace, Volt, Aerotek) you will likely be paid much less than you should be (NEGOTIATE HARD WITH THEM!), benefits and healthcare are minimal (Pace), definitely a disconnect between 3M culture and contract agency

Advice to Management

Hire people on who are under contract and have shown that they are dedicated, hardworking, deserving employees. Be more willing to take risks and make long term investments on people.

    Good pay.

    Cons

    I cant think of any.
