    I worked at 3M as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people here try their very best at what they do. You'll see a lot of projects and curiosity, the awe of being apart of a big name company will wear off quickly.

    Cons

    As a contractor, expect to stay one. One of the things 3M pride's itself in is not having lay-offs, don't be fooled. Every couple of months you'll hear of about 30 people being let go or getting an "extended vacation" because a project is on hiatus. Expect your stress levels to stay high while working here.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, the stand ups are a joke when you try to BS your own employee's. Don't give false hope either, most of the time we hear of all the new recs available but then there's another lay-off and it's not even discussed at the stand ups. Your employee's worry for their job security, and it's not because of their ability to perform, it's because of the companies inability to be honest. Employee's are wanting to move up and explore the company yet there are so many closed doors, be open and discuss more possibilities with your employee's and provide proper compensation - they even have to pitch in for coffee so the company can distribute, at least provide your hard working employee's coffee.

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

    Pros

    Great staff and very friendly people, they had wonderful people doing the work (Devs, QA, BA's), but the projects were so mismanaged the majority of those great people were let go.

    Cons

    VERY poor leadership, management never accepting responsibility for mistakes made and the senior leadership teams ethics are less then stellar
