General Mills - Generally a good place to work

Manufacturing Manager (Current Employee)
Golden Valley, MN

I have been working at General Mills

ProsCommitted to producing high quality products.
Many opportunities for professional growth.

ConsLeadership not committed to individual development - few managers know how to assist othesr with development.
Manufacturing leadership often sets unrealistic goals, then accepts superficial and unsustainable results.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time necessary to evaluate results and gains to ensure that the results are sustainable. Make a real commtment to developing people - There is MUCH to be gained with a small investment in increasing the effectiveness of individuals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
