    General Mills is a great company to work for, but my experience and career advancement is not what I hoped it would be.

    I have been working at General Mills full-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, workplace ameneties, discounts, etc. Good emphasis on employee health and wellness. Great oppotunities for new grads from prestigious schools.

    Cons

    Decisions begin made by upper levels without knowledge of how things really work. Politics and who-likes-who plays too big a role in promotions, etc than high quality of work. Too much outsourcing to contractors and moving jobs internally to India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to get people to improve on their "weaknesses", take better advantage of their strengths. Look beyond someone's history to their accomplishments and interests.
