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

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits program,able to have flexibility when it comes to working from home when sick and incredibly inclusive to everyone working.

    Cons

    Hard to get into the company (long application process). Not easy to move around in the company when it comes to jobs ( you must stay in your position at least 2yrs)

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits and BIG Company so you can move around once you get tired of management

    Cons

    Under paid everywhere. Women have to fight 3x as hard to get promoted. Minorities are hard to come by in this company. It is a Boys Frat Club in upper management. If your parent worked for 3M, doesn't matter if you know what 2+2 is, you are bound to get hired and promoted faster than more capable people and WOMEN.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic people to work with; a lot of long-staying employees mean they enjoy the job; very diverse; great company culture; excellent products - possibly some of the best in every industry! Great pension and awesome car fleet options.

    Cons

    Salary is surprisingly uncompetitive which I only found out upon jointing (and got offers for the same job from competitors); corporate employees can be a burden spending too much time in traditional and unproductive meetings
