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

    Pros

    Great people, very relationship oriented. Great work life balance with very strong support of employee development. Lots of smart people with excellent team spirit.

    Cons

    Slow decision speed, lots of meetings before the meetings to build consensus. Typical career is deep in one function, generally are not open to moving people around unless it is for new college grads going through development programs.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to cross functional moves.

    Approves of CEO

    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)
