Excellent Company to work for

Engineer (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at General Mills full-time for more than 10 years

ProsVery good benefits, great amenities, flexible work environment, family friendly.
Rewarding work. You can really see how your efforts help the company.
World Class products that are recognized throughout the world.

ConsUp until recently both pension and 401k (matching 50 cents per dollar). Now Pension is slowly going away for new hires but still very good 401k plan.
The company tends to follow fads a little too long.

Advice to Senior Managementfocus on your core products and be more aggressive against your competition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
