    Pros

    one of the pros is that this company is an agricultural processing company and stability is known in this industry. Great and friendly staff have always accompanied me in every role I was in.

    Cons

    At a facility level there was not much personal growth or development opportunities unless you were mobile.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be for management to work with employees more at all levels and promote development opportunities.

    Pros

    This is a large international company, which provides good experience for their employees. Plenty of personal growth. Sad to leave.

    Cons

    Down sizing and not replacing personnel that leave. Work life balance was not the greatest, but I did enjoy working there.

    Pros

    Very competitive salary, your growth within the company is fostered, great benefits and 401K.

    Cons

    Business professional dress code (suits every day), old-school corporate-like environment and thought processes, not very progressive or tolerant to modern ideas.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

    Pros

    Great people and a small company feel even though there are 30,000 employees. Management has the company on the right track and actually has vision, which is a big plus.

    Cons

    Salaries can be a bit low, but then again the cost of living in most areas where ADM has facilities is quite low.
    It's a big company and has never been too focused on IT, which is/can be a major issue in the present day.
