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

    Pros

    Emphasis on providing valuable training for employees, the people are just awesome - hard-working, sharp, with great personalities, and the products are fun to promote. Giant business but it still feels like a family.

    Cons

    Little movement and interaction between departments, locations are not in the most exciting places.

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

    Pros

    Everything about GMI is great!

    Cons

    Poor low level management (as is the case sometimes for such big companies) who doesn't develop those who seek to be developed. <------ This personal opinion applies to the only department (consumer services) I've worked in and seems to run very different from the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep training supervisors/managers to develop those employees who desire to be developed.
