    I worked at 3M full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great products, friendly working culture.

    Cons

    Clunky systems, very siloed in operations takes long to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    There are so many great things about this company, but it takes so long to get minor things done due to its approval process. Also, they seem to be entrapped with high margins on their products and are ready to loose business to maintain margin.

    There are some good folk with leadership qualities. Shame about the bullies.

    Do something about bullying. If you hire people for a role make sure it exits.

    I worked at 3M full-time

    Pros

    Great company that operates in some great markets. You can gain experience in various markets without having to leave. Matrix structure does provide some good checks and balances.

    Cons

    The matrix structure can be difficult to navigate and does slow responsiveness, reducing agility.

    Current Employee - Sales Industrial in Melbourne

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Autonomous role - Great products - Great reputation - Good immediate manager

    Cons

    - Product Prices far above market value. - Poor foresight with business decisions - Decisions take far to long to make, opportunities have passed before 3m acts. - Below market salary, promises on massive bonuses. Not very achievable. - Stagnate salary, lots of promises at start of employment on healthy increases, results have been around 1% for the last 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be a industry leader you need to hold on to good staff through remuneration. Each business unit needs to look at the 'market' value of reps in their specific industry and pay accordingly. At the moment the long term staff are the ones happy to plod along with minimum pay but that is how they go about their work as well.
