General Mills, Inc. Maternity Leave Comments
  • "My experience is in the marketing function at GMI - I have witnessed women at all levels of the function in leadership, manager, and support roles. For this reason, I am always surprised GMI does not offer better maternity leave benefits. I attribute this to the fact that there is a daycare onsite, so the aim is to provide resources to get women back to work sooner." - Lady hendricks28
  • "I've worked here for less than 5 years. The culture for women is far better here than the employer I left, but it is still discouraging to see women's careers plateau. In a recent round of promotions, all of the promotions went to men, and women were given more work without promotions. This might be an anomaly or just a coincidence but I found it very disheartening. Maternity leave could also be improved, only 2 weeks at full pay." - Lady Soul
  • "If you have less than 5 yrs of service the mat leave policy is 2 full weeks paid and 4 weeks at 60%" - Mbamama
  • "Part-time jobs were offered in the past." - Anonymous
  • "Some telecommuting, option for telecommuting" - Anonymous
  • "Occasional, alternative schedule" - Anonymous
  • "Matches up to $500 annually in a dependent care FSA" - Empoweredchic71
