    I worked at 3M

    Pros

    A career at 3M from right out of school is the best path with this organization. They promote longevity in their staff and there are many 20 year employees. This is a very inventive company and thus the career paths are endless.

    Cons

    Working in a huge organization can often make one feel like a small fish in a very big pond.

    I have been working at 3M for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, modern office environment, they either pay for metro OR garage parking, very established

    Cons

    Avoid this place! 3M is a good company but management in the DC office doesn't understand what it takes to be a successful Business Development manager. They constantly micromanage you. You'll spend 75% of your day sitting in meetings, half of which are irrelevant to your BD portfolio. Every piece of work that you turn in will be scrutinized to the tenth degree. There is very little budget to go to conferences or meetings. If you are "allowed" to go, you've gotta provide a detailed explanation on why you need to go, an agenda, who you plan on talking with, a back brief etc. Management thinks that conferences, etc are a waste of time and money. They don't like you talking to other departments or senior Execs in the company without getting "approval" first. If you take a vacation, they'll make you feel guilty about it. Avoid this place at all cost. It sounds appealing and attractive but once you get there, you'll quickly realize it wasn't what you thought it would be. If you've worked in BD at other places, you'll think this place is a joke.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at 3M for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Globally recognized brand and industry leader. Highly diversified product portfolio and businesses. The company fosters a culture of open collaboration and makes continuous investments in R&D . Corporate and business level vision and strategies are solid and openly shared with all employees. The company advocates for career and leadership development - there are no shortage of opportunities to develop yourself. Total compensation (both pay and benefits) are fair and 3M strives to continuously calibrate itself with peer companies to ensure it stays this way.

    Cons

    Innovation has always been a staple of 3M's brand, but sometimes it feels like a cliche rather than an executed priority. Development of new disruptive technologies occurs infrequently and often at a slower pace than markets demand. Large rigid/conservative organizations and processes stall the developments of new businesses and products.

    I worked at 3M full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good Products, Strong marketing. Strong R&D in the past

    Cons

    Unethical and discriminating company. Rather eager in protecting staff that is violating all internal rules in business conduct and firing people that bring this behavior of upper management to the open. The only meaning of their "Speak Up" tool is not to protect employees but to get rid of those that bring unethical behavior to the surface. Promotion is only possible through political maneuvering.
