    Vacation is very flexible. Out of 4 bosses that I've had, not a single one has tracked the number of days of vacation I've taken.

    Quality medical and dental coverage. General Mills does a good job with their benefits package. Doubt you'll be too disappointed.

    Time off is generous and work/life balance is definitely achieveable

    Has great benefits in terms of 401(k), medical, dental, group life. Unfortunately, the pension has been end-dated and replaced for new hires by a 401(k) savings plan option. Great perks at company on-site company store, fitness center, gas station, medical services, coffee shop, salon, credit union, etc.

    Best - Competitive has a lot of bonuses like work from home and summer Friday hours. Fair compensation, good onsite services like auto service center and health center.
    Worst - Trimming back on many of the perks like getting rid of the pension for new employees and cutting services offered at the WHQ campus is taking away some of the things that differentiate GMI as an employer of choice.

    Vacation, 401k, Base Salary, and Bonus are all fantastic

    Benefits are competitive, other benefits at the headquarters are really nice. For example, a concierge, on-site gym, on-site gas station and car mechanic.
