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

    Pros

    General Mills has amazing benefits and so many added little perks, such as an on-site salon, gym, mechanic, etc.

    Cons

    It seems internal positions are often filled with outside applicants. Current management could do a better job at reaching out to hiring managers on behalf of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take some time to invest in your current employees and what avenues are available to help them further their career.
