Your Pay

  • When you are paid at 3M, you are being recognized for the meaningful contributions you make to 3M’s business results. To ensure that our pay remains aligned with our desire to remain competitive, 3M regularly benchmarks pay and benefits with other companies that are comparable in size and scope.

    Your pay may include two components: base salary and variable pay. While base pay applies to all employees, variable pay is offered to eligible employees and may include annual incentives, sales incentives or other incentives.

    Annual Incentive Plan (AIP)
    The Annual Incentive Plan (AIP) aligns a portion of eligible employees’ pay with company, business unit and individual performance. In most cases, you are eligible for the AIP if you are an active, non-production, salaried 3M employee. Employees eligible to receive sales incentive compensation do not participate in the AIP.

    Sales Incentives
    Each sales representative’s pay includes base pay and sales incentives, paid monthly or quarterly, depending on the business you represent.

    Long-Term Incentive Plan (LTIP)
    Senior management-level (and equivalent) employees are eligible to receive equity grants based on their level of responsibility, individual contribution and leadership performance.


Your Benefits

  • Health care benefits are another important part of 3M Total Rewards. We provide comprehensive, quality benefits to you and your eligible dependents. If eligible, you may participate in most of 3M’s benefit offerings beginning on your first day of employment.

    Medical & Dental 
    The 3M Health Plan offers medical, prescription drug and dental. All of 3M’s medical plans include 100 percent coverage for preventive medical care when received from in-network providers.

    3M medical and dental plan premiums are deducted before taxes through automatic payroll deductions.

    Disability Benefits
    We provide company-paid short-term and long-term disability coverage in the event you become ill or are injured and unable to work.

    Life Insurance
    To help protect your financial security, 3M also offers a variety of life and accident insurance for you and your eligible dependents. 3M provides basic life and AD&D insurance coverage at no cost to you. Other optional life insurance coverages are offered at group rates.

    Paid Leave
    Paid leave is an important benefit that helps you balance your work and personal life. This includes vacation, sick, hospitalization, marriage, compassionate, examination, maternity, paternity, child care leave and adoption leave.

    General Employee Stock Purchase Plan (GESPP)
    The General Employees Stock Purchase Plan (GESPP) offers eligible employees an opportunity to make monthly purchases of shares of 3M stock at discounted prices through convenient payroll deductions. The price for shares purchased under the GESPP is fixed at the beginning of each month and represents a 15 percent discount from the closing trading price of a share of 3M stock on the first trading day of the month. Eligible employees generally may choose to contribute 3 percent to 10 percent of their eligible compensation.
