I worked at General Mills full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

In house lunchroom staffed by top chefs, comapny store and doctors on site

Cons

This company is great for interns and college grads with no families or outside interests as the workload is heavy. There have been many layoffs and structure changes in the past 4 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

High stress and heavy workloads are not conducive to a good work atmosphere.

    Pros

    Corporate office has perks like a company store, salon and coffee shop. If you have the right supervisor, it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    There is a defined ceiling if you you are not on a specific career path and if you have a bad manager...consider yourself stuck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really make sure your managers of people are being good managers.

    I have been working at General Mills full-time

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Great brands that you'll be proud to say you have a part of
    - Who can resist Cheerios???

    Cons

    - All roads point to MN
    - Very little of the touted perks are enjoyed in the field
    - No cost of living adjustment to salaries
    - Strong culture based on Minnesota Nice - which sometimes candor is needed for progress to be made

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without a vision, the people aren't aligned in moving forward.
