    I have been working at General Mills

    Pros

    - Diversity at forefront of values
    - Career advancement opportunities and transparency abound
    - Work is recognized and rewarded
    - Management style is mainly laid-back: we work hard, we play hard

    Cons

    - Retention of those who shouldn't be: GMI loves its employees and it hates letting anyone go. Great for job security, but it means you will certainly work with someone who shouldn't be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep doing what you're doing on staying transparent and rewarding a good job when it's due
    - Be more critical about who you're keeping around: some people can be too difficult to work with effectively, dampening our shared goal of driving results

    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.
