    I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fearless "producer" mentality without a "boiler room" environment
    Very respectful of work style
    Sharp focus on getting things done through sustainable relationships
    Incredible facilities and benefits

    Cons

    "Kool Aid" culture; try to fit in or you won't be happy
    Entrepenurial: very little training
    Relationship-based: must build a network quickly
    Very rigid HR paths and new employee pipelines

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reins on HR paths and allow more cross-functional moves and multi-level jumps, let the department heads and hiring managers dictate the hiring decision, pull HR back a little bit. (biased review)

    I worked at General Mills full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team environment, good compensation, good working environment.

    Cons

    Job lacks interesting characteristics, lack of opportunity for career growth. Felt trapped in my department silo with no chances in other areas.

    Advice to Management

    Know and value your smart, motivated employees. Make sure employees have a clear career director or they will lose motivation and move on to other opportunities.
