    Good place to get experience

    Business Development Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsConAgra provides excellent brands, and plenty of internal opportunities for growth experiences for your next position elsewhere.

    ConsFor aggressive, career-minded people, ConAgra will be frustrating at time. The size procedure driven culture offers a safe haven for 'career' employees, but will be difficult for aggressive professionals to navigate through without rocking the boat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat vision and goals by CEO, but serious leadership team deficiencies. Good 'ole boy network dominates promotions and stifles growth of the business - all seems to start near the top.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
