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

    Pros

    Exposure to world class working environment. Flexible work hours. Free transport facilities. Decent free cafeteria.. Work-life balance. Good Salary.

    Cons

    Non challenging work. No correlation of performance and growth. Once you get in, you will gather so much rust and become so irrelevant that you will spoil your resume & will find it difficult to find another employer, since your salary will be too high for your work experience. GBS division is on exit mode so don't get in. You may get good salary but once you are jobless after closing, then it will be very difficult to find job. Most managers are good natured, & kind but extremely incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Introspect the reason for people leaving. They are leaving because of non challenging work and no correlation between growth and performance.

    Good Work life Balance
    Focus on overall growth of employee.Not just in your core area, with all the trainings and seminars they make sure, an employee is good in multiple aspects of corporate life.
    Good work culture.
    Free snacks and dinner.

    Cons

    At alot of places bias and favorism is very evident.
    Company is slow, things are delayed alot because people are either on vacation or don't respond promptly.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should be visionary and should try to accelerate work processes.
    Managers should make sure people have enough work and that work is worth doing.
