3M Reviews

Great place to work for engineers, the company is split into functions that support major divisions and as such different groups tend to have their own identities. As you will find in most offices, the team is a product of the management style and the reporting structure. Generally speaking thought employees stay on with 3M for their entire careers. This is an incredibly stable company and landing a job here will give you no cause for concern.

Product development teams answer to the marketing teams and often materials and packaging teams are brought in to fix problems. Often the design or innovation groups are heralded for their work while the engineering, and manufacturing teams enjoy a more conservative environment.

I worked at the adhesive plant in Medina, Ohio. Everyone is super nice, friendly and understanding. It’s a pretty good work environment and safety is their number 1 priority. My only complaint would be their description of the position when I was hired. I was a college student in chemical engineering looking for a summer co-op or internship. When hired, they said I would be working on projects with the engineers. However, all I did the entire summer was package the products and prepare them to be shipped. The job itself wasn’t that bad, I just wished they would’ve been honest from the beginning about what it was going to be.
It's an amazing company filled with smart people and ethically driven workforce. Your drive to succeed really moves you places here-- and the support you get for childcare, education, and career development makes it even better than the good pay and fair time.
