    I worked at General Mills full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were professional, best in class to learn from and develop. Half day Friday and good pay rate meant I loved my time at GM. If you are mobile then the world is your oyster as they really have moved people everywhere from Australia. Regional office in Europe has very strong leadership and holds markets to account.

    Cons

    Culture a bit clicky in parts and favourites rise faster than others.
    Lots of night calls due to time difference can be taxing on family time.
    Centralised functions to regional / Europe teams can slow things down.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear and strong. Don't tolerate bad behaviour. Reward the good.

    Straight forward interview process with fast responses, a few behavioral questions, situational questions, and problem solving questions. Interview was relaxed, but Interviewer was nice but not good at the role.

  • Annette Frawley works in our Law dept. as senior counsel, intellectual property. She says: “I wanted to work for Betty Crocker at the age of nine. I didn’t realize at the time that Betty Crocker was a fictional character, but I knew the products with her name on them meant quality and were quite often present on the table during meals, family holidays, birthdays, etc. I remember the day I told my mom I had been hired at General Mills; she reminded me of what I had said as a kid. My instincts about the company at age nine weren’t wrong. I love working at General Mills with teams and individuals who care so much about each other and the consumers they serve. And who are so passionate about quality, innovation, the environment, engaging with those who choose our products and with those who do not choose our products, the farmers in our supply chain, giving back, making a difference in communities of various shapes and sizes. I love being able to still feel a connection to my farm roots. I am humbled by the caring, talented people I am so lucky to work alongside of each and every day."
