    I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with great brands Generally, most folks are less aggressive than in other places

    Cons

    HR does not do a very good job at communicating / managing changes International employees do not have the same opportunities / benefits as USRO folks. Case in point - expatriate packages differ when you're coming from an International market location vs. Minneapolis. People can be nice but sometimes, you need to read between the lines - can be passive aggressive The work in International can be mind-numbing: lots of fire-fighting due to lack of people but not enough growth in term of experience Promotion / career planning in International is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix your HR policies and your HR team in International - so many people are leaving because of unclear policies, unfriendly / unsympathetic HR team who do not know how to handle people.
