I have been working at General Mills

Pros

The perks are great! They are really good about work/life balance. Family time is respected and flexibility is encouraged. We are able to work from home when necessary. We can attend occassional school functions and it isn't frowned upon. The company really works to help you become the best employee you can be.

Cons

The main negatives are that the pay isn't always the best. But, they balance that with the perks. Sometimes, not making 6 figures is ok when I have more flexibility and great benefits. It evens things out a bit, and I think GMI knows that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget to work with the lower levels. Those people who are non-exempt still have a lot to offer. A great deal of those people under level 12 have college degrees and are great assets to the company. Sometimes, the leadership can overlook them and focus more on the 12+ and I think it is a mistake.

    The political structure of the organization is hard to learn and requires assistance to navigate.

    Continue to support and develop the junior leaders of the company and focus as much attention on the external hires as those from the companies various development programs.
