    I worked at General Mills full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your cross-functional team is stacked with smart, dedicated, hard-working people. It's also fun to work in food, since everyone has to eat! And if you want to learn how to be a brand manager, this is the place to do it.

    Cons

    Time to promotion is very slow. Leadership doesn't communicate key decisions in a clear or timely manner. There isn't a huge tolerance for risk taking or new thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Share the pain when making tough decisions. Those who are responsible for poor decisions should be held accountable, not protected.

    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
