    Hello, Thank you for your review! We are very sorry to hear that you feel you have experienced bullying and don't feel that 3M has integrity. As we hope you are aware, the company has processes that address your concerns and we continue to train all employees on how to address these matters when they occur. We would encourage you to reach out to your local HR rep to discuss these concerns. This gives the company the best opportunity to hear the particulars of the concerns to see how to address it. We hope this was helpful and wish you the best.

    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.
