I worked at General Mills full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

In house lunchroom staffed by top chefs, comapny store and doctors on site

Cons

This company is great for interns and college grads with no families or outside interests as the workload is heavy. There have been many layoffs and structure changes in the past 4 years.

Advice to Management

High stress and heavy workloads are not conducive to a good work atmosphere.

    I worked at General Mills full-time

    Pros

    Corporate office has perks like a company store, salon and coffee shop. If you have the right supervisor, it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    There is a defined ceiling if you you are not on a specific career path and if you have a bad manager...consider yourself stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Really make sure your managers of people are being good managers.

    I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still a decent place to work. Decent salary pay, good benefit and good employees.

    Cons

    General Mills is changing its corporate values culture. By outsourced many US jobs to India, company start cutting US jobs, lay off people. The Management is getting meaner and disrespectful, and company seems encourage it. The company is trying to cut cost from every corner, squeezing employees to an large open workplace called "Fusing". No dedicated working environment, no privacy. I have been working in this company many years, I am sorry to see the company is going to wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. GMI is going downward. The outsourcing US job and disrespectful management is hurting company's success. GMI either have to change the direction, or change the management.
