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

    General Mills really does try to treat its employees well. Benefits at the main campus include infant care, dry cleaning service, full-service auto center & gas station, fitness center.

    Cons

    Networking and constantly cultivating advocates are critical to career success and growth. Individuals with support from leadership are promoted while those without such advocates are not, regardless of actual performance.
