    I worked at General Mills

    Pros

    These are some of the coolest people that I have ever met. General Mills recruiting does a great job finding fit amongst their employees. Clearly defined career path. Great benefits

    Cons

    The work gets old really fast. It's not very dynamic and depending on your team, you can spend countless hours perfecting a PowerPoint presentation. There is some difficulty in pinpointing how to advance your career as you have to wait for a spot to open up. And then be the first to jump on it when it opens. Fostering a team environment can turn into a me-first or loudest person wins race to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow merit to be enough for career advancement. Improve work life balance.
