    I worked at General Mills

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were decent. If you're willing to work 50+ hours a week then there is opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    They are very regimented in their ways. There was not good communication and interaction between managment and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to feedback from your employees. Analyze the skill sets of each individual to customize their career path.

    No opinion of CEO
