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

Pros

Great company, amazing benefits. I would recommend anyone to work here

Cons

Managers tend to rise up the ranks moving from place to place... doesn't mean they're a good manager. They then tend to spend time trying to move up, instead of focusing on the job at hand.

Advice to Management

Put more stock into the work done towards a job instead of having people climb the ladder so fast.

    I have been working at 3M full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Honest co-workers, a lot of flexibility to get the job done, within limits (see below). Very interesting work, there's always something new going on, both in the product and process equipment aspects of the job.

    Cons

    Management stingy on 'discretionary spending' which is vital to networking for maximum effectiveness in position. Pay increases are modest. Senior technical staff have minimum spending authority.

    Advice to Management

    Provide spending authority to senior technical staff, and hold them accountable for results of the spending.
