    Pros

    The inital flourish of saying you work for GM quickly leaves a bitter taste in your mouth when you realize that the company will never credit hard work.

    Cons

    Research and Development is clearly the skid mark of GM - and they make it known. The compensation is horrible for the amount of work that you do, don't even think about getting a promotion it will take you at least 4 years. At least.
    The managers...I honestly don't even know where to start with that. Every one is out for themselves in this company. I can't help but laugh a little at some of the "great" perks that others are mentioning, clearly they work(ed) at headquarters. I worked at one of the technical centers and we never got anything, except a memo telling us not to drill holes in the wall because of the Asbestos problem - thanks!

    I have been working at General Mills full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. They are willing to help out. The company made Individual Development Plan a priority this year to make sure employees continue to develop during their career

    Cons

    Depends... if your manager is great (in my case), they shield you from red tape and large company politics. Although when implementing solutions, you will run into bureaucracy just like any large company
