Pros

Everyone says this, and it's absolutely true - the people! Some of the best people I've ever been priviliged to work with and for. Support staff (facilities, A/V, tech support) that are second to none and truly care about the quality of their work.

Cons

The culture of General Mills appears to be going through a major transition as a result of their recent major reorganization and downsizing, and work-life balance which used to be highly valued is more difficult to attain. They used to have an excellent benefits package and there have been several changes to this as well for new employees.

Advice to Management

Good luck!

    Pros

    good benefits, great people (not senior management).

    Cons

    PLT in ABQ very cliquish and non inclusive. Stressed TRUST and team work. The only trust in the building was the placard that said "trust". Managers manage UP very well, but could care less about the people who work for them.
    Hard workers are not valued, focus is not on production - but more on the program du jour. CI, Real Time, oh brother. Current plant manager came in five years ago and broke a system that wasn't broken.

    Advice to Management

    value your people, get over yourselves.

  2. They are just so happy.

    Pros

    General happiness
    Free food
    Clubs & Events
    Work Life Balance

    Cons

    Some people got laid off last summer, don't know details. Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about them. I've worked for other companies and you can't beat their culture.

    Advice to Management

    no surprise layoffs!
