Market Manager MENAT (Current Employee), Dubai, DU – December 8, 2013
Pros: leading strong brands performing in multiple categories with large talent pool, lot's of know-how, established operational process and procedures with extremely healthy hr policies
Cons: due to it's large size, slower rotation between roles and markets compare to the peers
In summary, Country Manager in General Mills has the full accountability of the business planning, execution and result of the market or region. And everything evolves around creating & executing. Obviously it's a big team and should be played among the functions in full harmony, hence being a team player is the number 1 skill to have to be succesful – more... in the organization. Hardest part of the job is to select the right priorities for the both current and upcoming fiscal, quarter, etc.. The region has lot's of potential and running after every opportunity could make the team lose the real big picture & focus. Most enjoyable part is, the team, industry itself (food) and continuously experimenting and improving ourselves. – less

NA Operations (Current Employee), Golden Valley, MN – October 23, 2013
Cons: disconnect between other business functions.
Highly political, advancement process is painful and extremely frustrating. New generation and previous generations tend to clash with one another, so implementing change across the organization is extremely difficult and in turn creates a negative environment.
Cons: 1 30min break is all you get, and you never sit or lean at all times
I worked GM as a temporary. The environment was not bad, but one of their problem was, the job was never secure. Every shift people would get in a line and if you worked several day priviously you would be sent home because they have to give a chance to others. Also their pay was not really great compare to the heavy lifting and constant hostility it – more... requires. No overtime and $9/hr. even third shift. – less
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WI – October 16, 2013
Pros: production jobs pay above average.
Cons: morale. corporate culture.
it used to be a really good place to work, but in recent years, the management team consists of mainly recent college graduates. they are mostly young girls, who are trying to prove themselves and show what they know. Rather than listen to experienced employees, they talk down to them, and demand that they get respect that they haven't earned.
