I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than a year)

Pros

General Mills offers several perks including generous vacation, 401k matching, and extras like a gym and salon at the office. The pay is very competitive and the company truly values its employees. They go out of their way to make sure you are happy at work and outside of work, too. Managers are highly competent and there are lots of opportunities for advancement or cross-functional moves.

Cons

It is very "corporate"! Lots of forms to fill out and just general bureaucracy, which is not so bad if you are Type A. Let's face it, if you get hired, you are probably pretty Type A.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and benefits packages

    Cons

    Experience and ability to apply and produce are not valued. If you are morally and ethically challenged and have a good political bend you will do well. Rewards the young and inept, who aren't willing to pay the price and truly learn and execute.

    Advice to Management

    Truly assess and reward employees on ability to produce and apply. Walk the talk and be progressive, innovative, and world class leaders instead of hiring or buying the world class technology / methods and then not executing or applying it.
