Too much politics. Managers talking bad things behind your back but say all the good things when you're in front of them. Seems everyone wanted to be in power.

it was good working with them. Nice work in supply chain. Management needs to change or upgrade as new product launches are not innovative. Market share is reducing but nice job security.
Pros

The people at General Mills are some of the most amazing coworkers I have had the chance to work with, with positive and friendly people across the departments. However, with the plateau of CPG in the marketplace, the company is in a tough position to raise market share, so a company that was once able to fill all 3 floors of its Canadian office can now fit everyone onto one floor. The expectation is for everyone to take their work home with them in order to complete their daily tasks, which leads to a hard work/life balance.
Pros
Friendly people, subsidized lunch, fitness centre
Cons
Long hours, management

Was a good company back in the day that went downhill. They hire and promote people who are unqualified and make the job unenjoyable. Didn't listen to employee feedback

Worked at General Mills Canada for 4 months as an AMM intern. I was constantly challenged as I worked on business innovation and business management initiatives. Marketing at General Mills is not a 9 to 5 job.

Produits très intéressant à présenter dans les épiceries, très bonne clientèle d'établie, toujours des ventes répétitives de produits mais beaucoup d'annonce circulaire pour appuyer les ventes. Budget pour le bill back à offrir aux clients, très avantageux pour les gérants. Trop grand territoire, et beaucoup de kilométrage.Objectifs réussis depuis le début (2 ans) à 100%.

Not a bad place to work, just wasn't the right fit for me. Almost all of their categories are in decline yet they still have outrageous growth targets year after year.
Pros
The young employees.
Cons
Corporate life and politics.

Not stable work load, production planning can be changing a lot in short time notice, many times per a month or even per a week. Stressful and demanding work environment. Low profession mid range management stressing the system and people. There use to be a slow production demand, and a hi volume demand production periods, which leave almost no time for life out work. Forced overtime, and long shifts(12 hours).
Pros
Good benefits and RRSP contribution for every one who wants
Cons
Forced overtime, long hours, cold/noisy work environment

Fun workplace, very people oriented. Even though you have a job title you will not be doing the same tasks everyday. Management is very friendly and always rewards their employees with bonuses, free lunches and summer schedules! Great atmosphere, people make you fit in if your new. I was on a contract job there.
Pros
Summer schedule
