Balbir

"3M allows me to use 15% of my time to work on exciting new projects or new inventions that will eventually have an impact on the business."

Balbir
Group Technical Manager

3Mer since 1995


"For 5 years I worked on my invention. My technical colleagues across five countries helped me to achieve my milestones. Eventually, I was issued a patent that had 38 claims. This invention would change the way we manage and heal bone fractures."

"I really enjoy collaborating with Universities, Business Unit Managers and also Industry Leaders in my current role. What I love the most though is coaching my team members."

Barbara

"I liken working at 3M as being one of the credit card advertisements with the catch phrase, 'priceless'!"

Brent

"I have had an amazing career with 3M.

I have held a number of Marketing roles since then within many different businesses - Industrial Business, Automotive Business, Marine Business and the Safety Business"

"In a Senior Marketing position I was involved and worked with the 3M acquisition Speedglas™. I then progressed to the Consumer and Office Business where I now manage the entire Post-it® business within Australia"

"Even in my short time at 3M, I have already been involved in many different product areas; Personal Protective Equipment, Commercial Cleaning products, Reflective Road Signage and Locating and Marking equipment just to name a few."

"So far it has been an excellent learning experience and has put me in a great position to continue to progress within 3M."

"There always seems to be new opportunities ahead. I have never felt 'stale' in any 3M job."

Gary

"The diversity of 3M has allowed me to advance my career through positions in multiple divisions. This is one of the reasons I have continued to stay here. I started in the controllers department as a cost analyst, after a few years moved on to a sales role with the Industrial Tapes business and further on to marketing in Industrial Specialties division. Since that role I have held various sales management, marketing management, and divisional manage positions within Industrial Tapes, Commercial Graphics, the Automotive Industry Centre in Melbourne, Packaging Systems, Medical, Dental, Office markets, Mining and finally Occupational Health & Environmental Safety (OH&ES) division."

"Where I am now in OH&ES the product portfolio is very broad and we are recognised as market leaders within the safety market. It is great to know we offer our customers real value with products that keep their world safe!"

Mark

"I am never surprised to know that somewhere, somehow, a team of 3M experts have invented a product or system that will change the lives of people everywhere."

Mark
Sales Executive

3Mer since 1994


"I joined 3M as a sales representative in the Industrial Tapes and Adhesives business. From there my career with 3M has meant I have worked in various divisions from Specialty Tapes, the Aerospace team and Abrasives business. Now I work in the Traffic Safety Systems business and I am loving it here too."

"This is consultative selling at it's highest, we deal with road authorities, local government, private enterprises on one hand and major sign manufacturers on the other. Our markets are diverse too from the authorities to vehicle or pavement marking. Hard work and support of my team is paramount to the success we have enjoyed over the past four years."

"Recently I won a 'Sales Excellence Award' for sales growth and specification changes to the manufacture and delivery of road signs with the NSW Government - Transport, Roads & Maritime Services. This change set a benchmark for other authorities nationally, as well as making our biggest competitor re-think their own strategy. I was very proud of this achievement."

"Sales people at 3M have a career path to aspire to. 3M is a diverse business that can offer everyone a world of opportunity as well as a long and rewarding career."

Samantha

"3M had the flexibility to allow me to gradually return to work after having children and working from home when needed."

Samantha
Senior Product Manager

3Mer since 2004


"I have had great variety in my roles managing different product ranges, the opportunity to create new and different programs and develop innovative products. I have gained further education which allowed me to introduce some great digital strategy into the marketing plans and share my learnt knowledge with colleagues."

"Having had 2 children throughout my time at 3M, they have provided me excellent support in their Maternity leave arrangements and also work flexibility."

"I enjoy the local manufacturing of the product I manage (Avagard), whilst having the flexibility and autonomy to deliver innovative marketing and product launch programs. It is so exciting to see your portfolio grow and the hospitals all humming along as the Avagard roll outs occur!"

"You never get bored here!"

Stephanie

"There is such diverse range of divisions, businesses and roles. You could spend the rest of your working life in the one company."

Stephanie
Marketing Coordinator

3Mer since 2005


"I love working for 3M because there is an appreciation and understanding of work/life balance. As an employer, 3M has been flexible to various circumstances which makes me strive to work as hard as I can."

"I started at 3M when my children were quite young, 2 and 5. They are now 8 and 11 in addition to having a toddler. 3M allows me to attend school events when needed and I can either take leave or make up the hours. With technology the way it is today also, my manager allowed me to work from home on some occasions. This increased the hours I worked in a day because I was working the time I would otherwise be travelling. I found these occasions to be very productive for a variety of reasons."

"I would describe working at 3M as satisfying, flexible, rewarding and respectful."
