    Pros

    Your cross-functional team is stacked with smart, dedicated, hard-working people. It's also fun to work in food, since everyone has to eat! And if you want to learn how to be a brand manager, this is the place to do it.

    Cons

    Time to promotion is very slow. Leadership doesn't communicate key decisions in a clear or timely manner. There isn't a huge tolerance for risk taking or new thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Share the pain when making tough decisions. Those who are responsible for poor decisions should be held accountable, not protected.

    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
