I have been working at General Mills as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They care about the employee and developing the employee and balancing work and life.

Cons

None really. Only that if you're a software engineer, this is more of an application development shop and the pay is less than at other places. However, it's such a nice place, and there is very few layoffs here.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.
