    Most of the roles in GBS are back-end which might not suit everyone looking for a challenging career. Limited chance to learn as things are more execution based than planning based.

    Advice to Management

    Hire right candidates for the right roles, or they will get bored in couple of months.

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

    Pros

    Good Infrastructure, Flexibility of work - they have different shifts you can opt for, work from home is also allowed, makes you feel like a family.

    Cons

    Lot of events, workshops etc keep happening, most of which are compulsory to handle. With quite a lot of work in your platter already, becomes very difficult to manage your time. Also, not a very fast-paced company in terms of adapting to market changes.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice that we could reduce a little budget allocated for extracurricular activities, alteast when the company's overall profit is going a little downward. Second advice would be to do better marketing of general mills products in India.
