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

    Pros

    Emphasis on providing valuable training for employees, the people are just awesome - hard-working, sharp, with great personalities, and the products are fun to promote. Giant business but it still feels like a family.

    Cons

    Little movement and interaction between departments, locations are not in the most exciting places.
