"I've worked for 3M for 2 years and have found it to be a strong company, with good benefits and security. It is a very large company with the ability to provide support to projects, but ideas or projects that are of limited scope may get brushed aside."

3M Employee

"Maybe it's the division I am in, but this company is full of corrupt / incompetent managers/supervisors. It's basically the blind leading the blind. The managers are all buddies who have been hanging out for the past 15-20 years and are all on a nickname basis, there is NO balance of work/family life! Managers who are salaried think nothing of putting in less than 6 hour days and THEY get plenty of family time while the little people "hourly employees" are held to rigid attendance policies."

QA Tester

"I worked here for 1.7 years and found it to be enjoyable. However, it was difficult to get requirements and help to do the job successfully. And it was clear in the beginning that they are slow to hire on contracts. However, the pay was wonderful, and I learned some new skills along the way."

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."

3M Employee

"3M is one of the worst companies I've witnessed in my 25 year career. They have no business pretending to be innovators and in most of the spaces that they are in, especially in healthcare. Sr Management is clueless and care more about job hopping and waiting to get their fat pensions & stock prices up. Employees are lethargic and there is no core mission or direction, truly a rudderless ship. Sr Mgmt is incompetent, disorganized and only care about the 3m processes."
