Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great people, flexible hours, decent pay

Cons

after acquiring Pillsbury, it turned into just another big company. No longer loyal to employees, too many politics, no vision for the future.

Advice to Management

Get back to your family friendly ways. Be more involved and don't rely on your subordinates to give you all your information.

    Networking and constantly cultivating advocates are critical to career success and growth. Individuals with support from leadership are promoted while those without such advocates are not, regardless of actual performance.
