No Opinion of CEO

Pros

Culture, People, Benefits, Innovative Company, Room to Grow (with some ifs though)

Cons

Very slow to make decisions and move. Not very good to hire talents. Mostly hire internally however 3M needs to learn from outsiders too. Bringing new blood to the company might help to accelerate

Advice to Management

Heavy body to move, really need to be agile. Not only talk about that, must take quick actions to be agile without affect the system performance.

  1. Sr. Environmental Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Multiple rounds of interviews. Near the end of the process, I was told by the hiring manager in an interview that there was an internal candidate. At that point, I pretty much knew my chances were shot...as I was also told that it would take me "years" to learn 3M, which seems a bit excessive. I've worked for major companies before and know there is a learning curve...but not a year! Overall, everyone was very nice, but I wish I would have known there was a preferred candidate from the beginning. Perhaps I checked a demographic requirement for their interview process, despite being well qualified for the role.
    Interview

    Very relaxed questions that still were technical. Felt more like a conversation. Less structured, but still asked about a lot of experiences related to the position.
