Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN
Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at General Mills full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people, very relationship oriented. Great work life balance with very strong support of employee development. Lots of smart people with excellent team spirit.

Cons

Slow decision speed, lots of meetings before the meetings to build consensus. Typical career is deep in one function, generally are not open to moving people around unless it is for new college grads going through development programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open to cross functional moves.

    I worked at General Mills full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great team environment, good compensation, good working environment.

    Cons

    Job lacks interesting characteristics, lack of opportunity for career growth. Felt trapped in my department silo with no chances in other areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know and value your smart, motivated employees. Make sure employees have a clear career director or they will lose motivation and move on to other opportunities.
