    I worked at General Mills

    Pros

    Nice offices, great people, great brands and fantastic European support. Really lovely people to work with. Lots of opportunity to learn on the job.

    Cons

    Ambitious growth plans, but no additional resources to enable success. Management are rude and grumpy and unappreciative of everyone's hard work. Not a lot of thanks!
