I have been working at General Mills

Pros

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

Cons

Leadership 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 ManagementAdvice

Take 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.

    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
