I worked at 3M full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The people are great. Variety of job opportunities.

Cons

Management sometimes didn't have a clue on how things got done nor were some of them interested in learning. They were more interested in looking good for their next job.

Advice to Management

Listen to the small person that works hard everyday so you can look good to others above you!
