I worked at General Mills full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- IT talent is among the best I've seen
- For the most part, Managers are chosen thoughtfully and trained well
- Compensation and Benefit plans are appropriate for a Fortune 500 Company

Cons

- Some managers have no idea who in their organization actually gets the work done, and repeatedly rewards the wrong employees

Advice to Management

My advice to current managers is to really get to know your employees, their talents, and what their contributions are. Reward those employees on the front lines who are sticking their necks out into the line of fire.

    -Room for promotion is limited due to low turnover, however it is possible with restructuring.
