I have been working at General Mills
Pros – If you're a follower......this is a great place to work. Friendly culture that does encourage community involvement. Great benefits for full time employees.
Cons – Cliques abound, and the company culture pits plants against one another which creates an incestuous blend of uneducated, yet blindly dedicated worker bees. You must emerge yourself in the culture of the location or you will drastically stand out. Adoption of out dated ideas and practices is mandatory. Do not buck the set pecking order, no matter how correct you are.
Advice to Senior Management – Understand how hourly employees influence weak managers, and hijack projects. Seniority does not guarantee the most qualified workers, and creates a system of entitlement. Also, examine how the personal agendas of departmental managers and SLT negatively affect production, creative work, and the motivation to perform.
