Approves of CEO

I worked at General Mills as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

genuinely good people
culture is great
people are extremely smart (much more so than i expected0
competitive pay

Cons

If you are there for over 5 years, it typically means you are going to be a lifer (maybe be pro or con depending on what you want)
Nothing really other than that, its a great place to be, especially if you are older and want good balance

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong brands, friendly people, great retirement (still offers a pension and 6% 401K match), good benefits (full medical/dental), "Minnesota Nice" culture

    Cons

    People being replaced by processes, average compensation (50-60% percentile for CPG), bureaucratic career path, slow to react in the marketplace, difficulty retaining top talent (quality of the people is decreasing)

    Advice to Management

    If GMI wants to remain a "best place to work," they need to treat their employees better - value education, compensate in the top tier of CPG (80-100% percentile), change org chart to reflect more merit driven culture
