Pros

Competitive salary, rotational programs make it great place to grow as a new hire. Management truly wants you to succeed and they will do everything in their power to ensure that you do. Life at the plant is fast paced and exciting...especially if you like a work atmosphere where something different happens everyday.

Cons

Depending on location, you may be putting in very long hours, including weekends. Some of the locations are not ideal either. If you want to move up quickly through the company, you have to be willing to relocate. With that said, successful employees are usually rewardeed with new opportunites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management is doing a great job keeping the company competitive with the market in its current state. This can be seen in the rise in General Mills' market value.

    Pros

    Great people....simply that. Opportunity to work with different functions. The opportunity for advancement is another solid positive. company works hard to satisfy people's request and challenges people to succeed. the pay is competitive pay is a positive for the industry.

    Cons

    Occasionally there are issues with communication especially here at corporate head quarters. Need to work more closely with all levels and ask for more feedback from lower levels. I think we need to ensure that job opportunities are not simply driven by locations. People should not be forced to do jobs oy based on locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to feedback and actually reach out for it.
