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
