Colleagues relied and trusted me with jobs that had never been given to a placement student before. When help was required I was never afraid to ask a question and employees would fall over themselves to help enrich your time at 3M.
Weekly 1:1 meetings help to ensure that I was on the right path. Quarterly reviews with the development scale used for permanent employees helped to gauge my improvement and engage in areas I have no previous experience with. Very helpful manager.
Frequently asked how I was coping with the workload. Taught to say 'no' if a task was unachieveable in such a tight time frame was very important and that was respected when occasionally used.
Owning projects and presenting them to management team with proposed processes. Planning and running the Education Show.
I learnt so much here!
Open plan friendly office with a under riding sense of commradery.
Very obvious that 3M have a number of students every year. Induction and handover was seamless and informative without becoming tedious.
Lean Six Sigma Training, workshops in project management, time management etc
Fingers crossed - HR and my division have been in discussions to find relevant head count and keep me on once graduated.
16 placement students and regular nights out. Also all part of a charity fundraising effort which bought everyone together.
I lived at home!
Very popular. Reading is closest and has a very happening social life due to being a university town.
Conferences, sports days, team nights out.
