      Pros

      There is a strong belief in innovation and employees are given a lot of flexibility to make a difference. Total compensation is very good It is a collaborative environment

      Cons

      A large amount of overhead & meetings searching for consensus Some decision makers are too disconnected from the day to day reality

          Pros

          Some of the best people I have worked with are or were employed by 3M. Plenty of opportunity to learn how to change direction on the fly.

          Cons

          Plenty of opportunity to learn how to change direction on the fly. To the point it felt like the project(s) were rudderless much of the time. The great leaders and employees were often ignored when presenting hard truths about project decisions that would end up costing time and plenty of money. Due to laying people off each year for the last 6 years it is hard to trust the executive leadership strategy. It has also caused significantly more work for those that are left after they lay offs. To be transparent I was laid off in the May 2023 layoff but I have honestly been more concerned for those that were left and had to continue to pick up even more work with less people on unrealistic deadlines. It is hard to watch a company that has played such a major role in the economy of the state I have called home my entire life but there are some serious problems right now starting at the top and due to that I would caution anyone from accepting a job offer from 3M.

        How do you stall accepting a job offer if you're still waiting on other jobs/interviews to get back to you?
