3M Employee

"The company has quite a few interesting technical platforms that can be utilized to developing interesting products. There are many good people who are experts in their field. The project manager structure is not efficient and somewhat discouraging, as the PMs are not hands-on and not the real experts in the field, but they are in charge. Average people look up to them, instead of real expertise. Just a bit too much politics."

3M Employee

"I've been working for 3M Company since 2014 and I found the project that I am working on to be challenging. We, as a whole team, are very motivated to get the things done and quickly absorb the new processes that allows for better productivity. I have been moving out from SDLC and going into Agile-Scrum for the past 3 years with a phased approach of adding epics & features and plannings related to that. The work life balance is amazing. Technology-wise, 3M does move a bit slowly as compared to the retail giants in outside world, but they do catch up quickly. I would highly recommend 3M."

Technical Aide

"I have worked as a Technical Aide at 3M for almost 2 years while simultaneously studying Mechanical engineering at the University of St. Thomas. While working, I have been given the tools I need to succeed. I have been fortunate enough to have people who are willing to instruct me and give me the freedom to take on projects of my own. Overall, I have had a positive experience at 3M."
