I have been working at General Mills full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Opportunity to work with extremely talented people across all functions. Great training ground - company does try hard to bring in external thought leaders. Summer Fridays are great.

Cons

Many AMMs are stretched way too then - the scope of the AMM desk often includes grunt work and project management that does not allow the head space needed to think creatively about driving the business. I would say Marketing is both sink-or-swim and up-or-out - don't expect any degree of hand-holding coming in even though you know nothing about the role.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

understand the longer-term implications of low morale among associate-level marketers

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

    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.

    Pros

    Everything about GMI is great!

    Cons

    Poor low level management (as is the case sometimes for such big companies) who doesn't develop those who seek to be developed. <------ This personal opinion applies to the only department (consumer services) I've worked in and seems to run very different from the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and keep training supervisors/managers to develop those employees who desire to be developed.
