Awesome job security; not for creatives
Marketing Communications Planner (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 30, 2017
General Mills is creme de la creme if you want a grown-up job. Good pay, amazing benefits, incredible work/life balance, seemingly endless vacation days. The HQ office is really lavish and comfortable.
BUT this is not the place for a young creative. If you're looking to move and shake, you may need to reconsider. GMI puts business and numbers first, then communications/advertising on the bottom of the list.
If you take this job, you'll really round out your business savvy. You'll learn a lot about operating a business, sales, supply chain, and traditional marketing.
Free food, amazing benefits, work life balance, vacation days, job security
Old-fashioned, traditional business, slow-moving
