    I have been working at 3M full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    ethical company with strong value, good quality products, the company cares about its employees, lots of opportunities for advancement, great pay

    Cons

    a lot of politics and your career is in your boss's hands, if they like you- you go far, if they have a problem with you its easy for them to hold you back. sadly too many just care about themselves instead of their people. if your boss fights for you, they can get it but most dont care enough to go to bat. but some do- if you find a good boss who genuinely wants you to grow, you can have an incredible career. also the company spends way too much time worrying about internal optics and doing this with an internal mindset and perspective. The entire business and marketing team will spend 3 weeks preparing slides and excel files for a US VP visit but not spend anywhere nearly as much time and leadership engagement on the customer, in field research etc (politics and internal optics often become more important than the customer and external market).

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

    Pros

    Really good pay with long-term incentive compensation at relatively low management levels. Benefits decent, but getting more expensive every year like everywhere. Work life balance great.

    Cons

    Long-term strategy seriously lacking . No longer a growth company and difficult to see a turnaround. New CEO stepped in to a really tough situation and has not gained confidence with investors, employees, or analysts. Biggest issue for people looking at this company - the company keeps getting smaller by consolidating divisions and big businesses so there are less and less opportunities for employees looking to advance their careers.
