Don't believe the hype!

ProsGreat people, good benefits, great training, great brands, flexible work spaces/schedules, resume builder

ConsHated it. Oppressive culture, slow and political bureaucracy, lack of automony, must play the game to get ahead. Many rave about General Mills, but I generally hated working there...gotta be honest. I met some amazing friends and learned a lot, but I found the culture soul-sucking. It's very corporate, you are always being watched and evaluated. Was sooo happy to get out of there. If you fit, it's great, if you don't, it's pretty torturous.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
