Former Employee - Commodities Sourcing Intern in Minneapolis, MN

I worked at General Mills as an intern for less than a year

Pros

genuinely good people
culture is great
people are extremely smart (much more so than i expected0
competitive pay

Cons

If you are there for over 5 years, it typically means you are going to be a lifer (maybe be pro or con depending on what you want)
Nothing really other than that, its a great place to be, especially if you are older and want good balance

    I worked at General Mills full-time for 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
