I worked at General Mills full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Many amenities, enjoy perks provided when meeting goals, Have resources to get things done, which is a huge plus. Good about communication to employees.

Cons

Very high school like in its culture - many clicks, people not always honest to your face, highly competitive, work life balance talked about but not really supported...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust that your employees know what they are doing and have the necessary expertise. Support them when they show initiative.
