I have been working at General Mills part-time

Pros

Excellent culture. Very smart people you work with. Family Oriented. Excellent work life balance. I really couldn't ask for more from GMI. Benefits are top notch.

The thing that kept me coming back to General Mills are the people, there is a General Mills personality that makes people want to be there. After being there for so long, it is extremely easy to make good friends at work.

Cons

I was not passionate about working with cereal and food products in general. However, I loved the people I worked with, so this was not a huge issue.

    I have been working at General Mills full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great - medical, 401k, company vehicle. Flexibility of field location - work from home office. Company is well respected.

    Cons

    Poorly designed and ever changing sales territories. Lack of opportunity to advance or even make a lateral change within company with this position. IDP is a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rapport with customers is key to success. Stop changing account responsibility as often.

    I have been working at General Mills full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very competitive pay, vacation, medical dental, retirement 401k.
    Lots of differing experience and development opportunity. Challenging projects and meaningful work off the bat.

    Cons

    Very political and every day is a show. Wherever you are someone might get a glimpse. Hopefully that person understands but may not and they will draw conclusions based on opinion rather than fact.. Very little accountabilty at any level that I have seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand the actual process as well as the management aspect. Respect can quickly be lost if you 'just manage people'
