Pros

Family friendly, excellent pay, great benefits, flexible schedule of hours, good communication, good working conditions, management was very personable. A good place to work.

Cons

Old warehouse, needed alot of updating, could only advance so far at this location due to everyone staying until they retired!

Advice to Management

Always be open with your employees regarding the state of the company. It's good to know what's going on at the top.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Surround yourself with some very passionate people

    Cons

    you can often find yourself working for someone from an entirely different business unit, unfortunately their experiences leave them as a fish out of water and they offer little value in their new role, their lack of business knowledge and lack of network can inpede your advancement.

    Compensation at 3M is another negative, as you can see in the salary area, 3M jobs from entry level to Director level are at least 20% lower than comparable Fortune 500 companies

    Advice to Management

    Get back to treating your employees as if they are highly valued. 3Mers realize that they could always make more elsewhere, but when they were treated as important the moral was high.

    Pros

    3M is an interesting, exciting, and fun place to work. With different divisions, it encompasses all job types from medical to chemical, research and development, international, administrative, and many others. I truly enjoyed working there and learned so much using machines and processes I would never have been able to use while attending college.

    Cons

    While working in the Research and Development area, I found the majority of the people I worked with to have trouble interacting with others. I believe this is because the majority of the people I worked with were PhDs and were very very very focused on their work. However, I couldn't even get a friendly hello out of them in the hallway. This social ineptitude showed in our meetings and management strategies as the meetings dragged on and very little got accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more professional leadership and management training for team and project leaders while at 3M. Not just Six Sigma or other similar programs.
