I have been working at Imation full-time

Pros

*food service on-site (Lake Elmo Inn)
*casual atmosphere
*located right off 694, just north of 94

Cons

*good ole boys club
*inept employees are moved around between departments instead of terminated
*too many legacy 3M employees from spin-off are still there - they do not adapt to change well
*no tech support
*dysfunctional systems (either home grown or canned that has been so mutilated that it can't be updated with the original software)
*buy companies to grow, without understanding what the companies do or sell

Advice to Management

Can I advise upper-management to terminated themselves? Because that's what they all deserve. Lucas has driven this company into the ground.

    Pros

    great people, very much pro-employees. Great benefits, nice work environment and an amazing building. Everyone is very approachable.

    Cons

    "drifting" a bit. Tough portion of the market to do a turn around with market declines in key targeted areas

    Pros

    Great learning environment, Good people to work with, Humane management, ok benefits, nice starting job, relatively flat organization, nice corporate campus

    Cons

    Lot of stress because of company not growing layoffs are an annual feature. So more work for people still working. Lot of time wasted reporting upwards. Very little time spent selling and generating new revenue.Mediocre top management bench. Executive raises are very regular even though rank and file employees have pay freezes

    Advice to Management

    Go out and meet the customers to see what they really need.
