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.

Challanges and Growth

I love Mondays, mostly because the day flies by in a flash. On a given day, during the early hours I'll go through what are the priorities are for the week, meeting with team for half hour to communicate the needs and organizing the team schedules. Looking at the demand plans and priorities for the loadings for production. Plan for the month base on the loading and capacity and trigger if there is need for any additional work force required to fulfill the demand.

Culture of learning and developing laterally even within peers

One of the distinct culture that 3M has is the learning culture..One can never be afraid to ask questions and seek answers even intra-department so as to make decisions in your daily work.. This is exactly the environment that allows for creative and innovative ideas and problem solving to freely flow.. 3Mmers are commited to work as a team to make courageous decisions in our daily work as long as the intention is well thought through..

Pros

big family culture where all come together to work on daily challenges

Cons

recent years head count freeze has put much strain on resources
