    Pros

    General Mills allows for open communication as well as innovative ideas. The Company wants all if its employees to succeed, knowing that the Company will do better with employees who are content.

    Cons

    It takes too long to try something new. The culture of General Mills is to always try to be nice, but sometimes to get things done, you have to get in peoples faces and ruffle feathers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to stay away from micro management styles. Get the input from the floor employees early on in the process and make them feel like they are part of the solution, not like the solution is being forced on them.
