I have been working at General Mills

Pros

General Mills is one of the best work environments I have ever experienced. The work is varied and interesting, and I am surrounded with bright people who treat others with respect.

Cons

I honestly do not have any downsides to report about General Mills. I've been working in professional positions for 20+ years and this is the most satisfying environment I've worked in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job at providing a positive, respectful work environment for highly capable people, and for navigating a difficult economy successfully.

    I have been working at General Mills

    Pros

    There is a high level of competency amongst the peer group, which I believe can be attributable to the tests taken during the interview process. Management was free to give you the reigns on projects or daily tactical responses, showing a high level of trust. The company size yields greater development opportunities.

    Cons

    We all worked a lot of hours 50+ per week. The work day was designed at 9 hours, then you may have to work an additional 5+ to accomplish other things you are working on, or hold meetings with different shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    General Mills application of policy is not necessarily consistent. In addition, many individuals from the corporate office are sent to the field to "learn". I think this could be accomplished earlier in an individual's career vs. in the role of department managers.
