  9. 9. I’ve always thought that General Mills is a great place towork because I’m able to learn, grow, develop andcontribute AND have my life. General Mills has beenwith me through grad school, having a baby, adopting ababy, and now going through a divorce and being a singlemom. I would have never made it through all these lifetransitions had it not been for the culture of GeneralMills that has supported me and allowed me to keepgrowing through it all. Of course I identify closely withwhat the company stands for, yet I think my kids aredirect beneficiaries of the company’s culture, philosophyand policies – and because of General Mills, their livesare better.

  11. 11. At General Mills, I am consistently challenged and enjoy the pressure that comes from being surrounded by intelligent & committed people who push me to think differently and become a smarter business person. The people at General Mills are not only intelligent, but also a lot of fun, so I havemade many friends who I spend time withoutside of work as well − an added bonus! Lauren Peterson, Customer Manager Rogers, Ark.
  12. 12. An important factor in mydecision to join GeneralMills was theircommitment to givingback to the broadercommunity. Ten yearslater I continue to beimpressed with howmuch that is ingrained inthe culture of thecompany and ouremployees – 82% of ouremployees volunteeroutside their work and18% serve on non-profitboards. It is great towork for a company thatnot only focuses onbusiness but also onemployee developmentand giving back to thecommunities which help Tim Huebsch,all of us be successful.
