I worked at General Mills full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- most people working there are smart and helpful - company values work/life balance and (at least in IT) schedules are very flexible: more about your results rather than the time you spend in the office - great benefits - diversity is valued - very nurturing culture

Cons

- sometimes slow-moving as is typical for a large company - minneapolis can be a challenge in the winter - your impact is sometimes lost in such a big company

    I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong brands, friendly people, great retirement (still offers a pension and 6% 401K match), good benefits (full medical/dental), "Minnesota Nice" culture

    Cons

    People being replaced by processes, average compensation (50-60% percentile for CPG), bureaucratic career path, slow to react in the marketplace, difficulty retaining top talent (quality of the people is decreasing)

    Advice to Management

    If GMI wants to remain a "best place to work," they need to treat their employees better - value education, compensate in the top tier of CPG (80-100% percentile), change org chart to reflect more merit driven culture
