Uppers

The development of relationships was a key aspect of the 3M internship. Also, the team building activities and the tour of the plant.

Downers

I did not like the housing. Stadium View was very unclean. The smell of the facility was horrible and there was not a way to open a window or door.

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I would have known the extent of the groups within 3M. 3M is a large company! The knowledge of the different departments would be great knowledge to have before hand.

Advice to Management

My supervisor was AWESOME! She was not a micro manger and gave great feedback.

Undefined territory

Advice to Potential Interns

Although this organization is huge, the support and availability of individuals across industries and positions is incredible.

I think training could be improved. I did receive a crash course because my time here was short, but it needed to be slowed down.

Des Moines, IA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Networking with multiple different employees to understand their job functions and determine a career path for myself was especially helpful, having a training week at the headquarters which allowed advanced learning and collaboration with fellow interns was fulfilling, being able to co-lead a project was an eye-opening and very developmental experience.

Downers

Sometimes the communication from my mentor was minimal due to vacation conflicts, the project I was working on was a bit unclear from the start which hindered progress.

Advice to Potential Interns

There are so many opportunities and locations available to work at within 3M as a company, so you can move around to different divisions within 3M if you are looking for another job. 3M is very accommodating to most any life issues, and they have a great company culture and belief system that puts them above the rest.

Advice to Management

n/a - I haven't been able to experience most of what the company offers in terms of employee retention, promotion policies, and training. I do know that the pay is very good and competitive, and the company is also diverse.

Uppers

Informational Interviews, career and peer mentorship, group project and intern bonding, atmosphere within company

Downers

Information Technology is a very quiet and introverted environment, that which I am not accustomed nor do I enjoy. But that's the same in most companies.

Advice to Potential Interns

Great opportunities within the company given professionals move from one area to the next after 2 years in each position. Potential to have multiple careers within the same company. People here stay for decades because of the ability to jump around if they want to try something new.

Advice to Management

Full-time compensation could be better. Pretty standard relative to market average but made me question as to if it was worth it.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time when you worked in a team.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great opportunity to explore the company

Uppers

Team treated me like I was one more engineer with all the responsibilities one would expect.

Downers

Work was fairly secluded so there is not a lot of human interaction.

Advice to Potential Interns

Try to figure out early on if the job is for you, and if not, make sure you network ALL summer to find a group that might be a good fit but keep doing the best you can at your job.

Advice to Management

More clear guidelines when it comes to working hours, overtime, how to handle holidays, etc.

Would You Recommend

Yes
