    I have been working at General Mills full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    General Mills has great people, and is a great place to show up for work every day. I most appreciate the values, and inclusive culture across the organization. Balance and flexibility are encouraged, and supported.

    Cons

    General Mills has fallen far behind on their support for working moms, specifically the paid maternity leave policy. Combined with short term disability pay, women receive 6 weeks paid leave IF they have 5 years with the company. If not, they receive less. This is becoming an increasingly non-competitive in the local market and certainly in the global landscape, and starting to significantly impact morale among working moms. It is quickly becoming a deterrent to anyone planning to start a family, and a retention issue for those already at Mills.
