I worked at 3M as a contractor (more than an year)Pros
Great name, gre.at products and good peopleCons
As a contract employee developing a new department within the company it was not very lucrative as after expenses the pay was entry level and expertise was used to train a salaried employee to do the job and introduce to my contacts. Training was excellent, my only advice is to accept only actual employee of 3M jobs and not contract. I often faced price negotiations with a customer, to find that an existing department was in competition with me and my pricing wasn't adjusted , therefore I was competing with established departments within the company who won bids as they were given better pricing. Being in competition with the company you are representing is not conducive to success nor engagement.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Being in competition with the company you are representing is not conducive to success nor engagement. When hiring contract representatives for their expertise and contacts make sure that they also get the same access to pricing as internal departments. We just look ridiculous in the eyes of our established customer base. The purchase orders 3M gained were far fewer than if equal access was given to contract employees.
