I worked at General Mills as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

People of high integrity, willing to challenge business partners in meetings and considerate of how their behaviors affect those around them. Ability to rotate to all parts of the organization in the finance function, giving a robust overview of how a business operates. Commitment to leadership development from within.

Cons

Long waits for promotions due to low turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set stretch goals for individuals. Challenge the way things are currently done.

    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.
