    Pros

    Flexible working hours, summer hours (half day friday), Omaha is a great city if you have a family. Very supportive leadership.

    Cons

    Average pay, hard to advance into leadership roles. No profit sharing. This company is a leader but is American. there are no international opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hold people accountable. people make mistakes doing their best. people make mistakes because they don't do due dilligence - hold them accountable.

    Pros

    Summer Hours, Dress for the Day, Vacation starts at 3 weeks. Work life balance can be good depending on your manager.

    Cons

    Management hyper short-term focused. Cut off nose to spite the face. Lack of strategy or true leadership within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with strategies and communicate real numbers for annual plan. Stop promoting people internally and bring in some fresh perspective. Other companies don't operate this way!

    It is not clear on what it takes to get promoted
    Eventual new CEO could make big changes so the future is not clear
    Poor recent strategy and execution has resulted in layoffs and lower morale.

    Invest when things are bad so we can take advantage of opportunities when things are good.

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time

    Pros

    great place to work, good income, great boss and coworkers. increase pay fast during first year, duties are not hard or complicated

    Cons

    often have lay off periods in which you may or may not be called back to work, sometimes work late or 6 days a week if production is up or you could only work a few days a week when production is down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    open up plant duties to secure more contracts for the company,
