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

    Pros

    Strong marketing knowledge and consumer orientation
    Great career opportunities
    Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Politics play high

    Advice to Management

    Would you want to change the culture toward a more straightforward approach like the east side cost style?

    Pros

    Stability, benefits, smart people, well respected products/brands. Big company with lots of different areas and opportunities if you know how to navigate. Corp HQ is beautiful with a Caribou Coffee onsite

    Cons

    Corporate politics, size of organization makes it difficult to make impact. Change is slow. Diversity and culture seem superficial. Real connections are difficult to develop and maintain since things are constantly changing (people move from role to role quickly)

    Advice to Management

    Change is a constant but when nothing is consistent, you lose people's sense of loyalty and purpose.
