    Pros

    The overall culture at General Mills is outstanding. The high performing nature of the job is exciting and brings new challenges every day. Great products to promote and work on, and the leadership at the company is solid.

    Cons

    Not all teams are run by managers who should be leading others, especially interns. In my experience, I extremely devoted to my brand and its products, and having an overall positive impact during my time there. However, I was not given the respect or mentorship by my immediate manager who led the team rather ineffectively and did not ensure the team was cohesive and inclusive. I expected better, especially as I noticed the vibe and performance of other teams. It was a disappointing overall outcome, though I gained so many great skills during my time there.
