I have been working at 3M part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours, decent pay, helpful bosses, fun perks. Although tech aide positions aren't the greatest thing in the world, they are very good for soph.s or jr.s in college. They provide a basis of knowledge that will help you get a future entry level job or internship.

Cons

There aren't many cons working as a tech aide, at least for my job. The only thing that is a bit cumbersome is working while you are in school. However they don't force you to work during the academic year and many students only work summers or breaks.

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

    Pros

    Discounted product, sometimes getting reserved parking when someone is out of the office. Having a clinic & pharmacy onsite.

    Cons

    New comers not welcomed. Difficult culture being new.

    Advice to Management

    Get MORE new blood, change is good. Investigate culture and make some changes. More respect for women and clerical staff. People comment on how wonderful 3M is but that is all they know after working there for 30+ years. It is not the best company and needs improvement. I am very disappointed in my career with 3M and after 3 years, I am looking elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    I was part of the IT internship program and it was great. The intern team was given a meaningful project to work on and got to present it to the CIO. There were many networking events and there were many job openings for those that wanted to stay with the company. The culture was great.

    Cons

    Long hours if you were part of the the SAP implementation for full-time workers. Tons of construction around the campus which was annoying at times.
