    I have been working at General Mills full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    General Mills offers several perks including generous vacation, 401k matching, and extras like a gym and salon at the office. The pay is very competitive and the company truly values its employees. They go out of their way to make sure you are happy at work and outside of work, too. Managers are highly competent and there are lots of opportunities for advancement or cross-functional moves.

    Cons

    It is very "corporate"! Lots of forms to fill out and just general bureaucracy, which is not so bad if you are Type A. Let's face it, if you get hired, you are probably pretty Type A.

    Pros

    The benefits package can't be beat. The pay in great. The culture is very good.

    Cons

    Twelve hour swing shifts can really wear on you. Company would rather promote a poorly performing engineer off of the manufacturing floor rather than find a good person to fill their spot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to push out those that are bringing down the company.
