Free coffee and chocolate drinks provided, has snooker table pool, dynamic culture to adapt with.

High turn over rate, people in and out easily. The company only hires contract workers for the time being due to changes are very fast. Different region uses different systems.

Process driven, slow paced with no sense of urgency, detached management and leadership at regional level

Wouldn't recommend for go-getter and people who enjoy fast pace of work environment. Many veteran employees who are resistant to changes and leaders are detached from industry developments. Only asked to adapt but never quite innovate, does not seek to improve situation. Held many meetings to review problems but never have timeline for solutions. Reactive and not agile.

Pros

General staff welfare is great. People on general are nice.

Cons

Poor leadership, resistant to changes and process driven to the point of micro management

Generally laid back

Lots of automy. People there generally resistant to change so hard to implement new things. Lack of a centralised system with data in multiple silos. Top management requests not realistic

Full of old people

Slow but i guess good work life balance. Old and not really agile anymore . Very US centric in terms of decisions made. Suitable for people who want to sit back, relax and retire

encounter culture shock at workplace

As a contract worker the hardest part of the job when its hard to earn they trust and respect specially when I am different from them, not permanent staff. Then some of the job description that they required me to do is different from the actual. I was scolded when I asked question related to a job before 5pm, I was judged without a chance to explained my side.

Productive and Team work is being observed

Being a multi company, we practice team work and collaboration. This means working with diversified environment. My typical daily life in this company will be started by meeting and will be ended by meeting. The hardest part working in this company is working with people with different working styles and of course finding the best time to schedule the meeting due to our different time zones . Through this I have learned time management and be flexible.

Pros

Discount in 3M Products
