    Growing company with culture problems

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of independence. Ability to learn on the job. Excellent upper management.

    ConsLittle chance of advancement without an 'inside' connection. Rampant nepotism.
    Cavalier attitude towards compliance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management is extremely resistant to the excellent changes being brought about by upper management. Little if anything trickles down to the lower levels.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent pay but not worth the time

    Operations Superintentendent (Former Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsVery good company to work. Higher pay scale than most in the industry. Very focused on safety

    ConsSeems like safety is the only thing they care about. Took to much time away from daily during all parts of the year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease help middle management do there job and cut out a bunch of the safety stuff. Pretty soon a employee will have to write a air quality permit to go to the bathroom. Way to much of the CYA attitude throughout the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Greet working environment, a lot of focus of safety and doing the job properly.

    Great employer that encourages all employees to gain new career opportunities within the company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany advancement opportunities. Upper management willing to listen to what you want out of the job and your goals for the future. There are a lot of different ingredient plants across the country so if you decide you don't like a certain ingredient theres plenty to choose from.

    ConsDifficult to find employment in the Research and Corporate field, not as many opportunities lie in the plants.

    Decatur, IL

    Good company to work for.

    Senior Accounting Analyst (Current Employee)
    Decatur, IL

    ProsThe company offered many opportunites. The benefits and pay were satisfactory. The work life balance is appropriate. I liked the company.

    ConsThere are not too many cons to talk about other than the location of the corporate headquarters. ADM is the big fish in a small town. Not a lot of opportunity for spouse employment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
