Default Would like to know more on 3M and BAT, pls share...

Hi folks, i've been jobless for a month now and been to a couple of interviews. Good news is that i've just got job offers from 2 companies (3M and British American Tobacco).
Can anyone provide any info/insight on these 2 companies (ie work environment, culture, career progression). Would like to know more and appreciate any feedback u guys can share

Thanks in advance

I'm a dip grad in ECC.

I didn't apply to the companies but through agencies which happened to have openings for these 2 companies.

not really lor.... I not sure about BAT, but 3M giving AWS and about 2 weeks to 3 weeks bonus, depend on the sale. If you can get one month for bonus, you should be happy liao. That is yearly bonus hor

The reason I resign from there was because I am so disappointed on the management side. Just eg: A senior production technologist without a diploma cert and without skill can get highly recognise, this was because she know how to carry balls, buy breakfast and bring her supervisor outing...And the rest who work hard, gain nothing.

Go in and see for yourself..

if you have no ethical qualms about working for BAT, it is a much better choice than 3M.
(though 3M is a good choice too if you compare to most local companies)

I work in 3M Singapore many years.
Manufacturing.
Life was good in the 2000s
With the senior management now, it sucks.
I am thinking to even resign without a job.
That's why you see many vacancy available in 3M
