    Pros

    If you enjoy working for large companies ConAgra is a great place to work because of the inclusive culture that Senior Management is cultivating.

    Cons

    My experience at ConAgra has been great and there are very many downsides to me. The one downside that i will mention is the seemly unfair way that some Senior Leaders handle promotions.

    Advice to Management

    ConAgra is a wonderful place to work. Over the past several years I have noticed a true change in the way that Senior Leaders treat the employees. However, it is important that promotions are handled fairly and without bias.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement are growing and are already at levels that are unseen in most industries. There are exciting work environments in every corner of the company, ConAgra is a progressive company which is one big reason there are some many opportunities for advancement. They have an excellent relocation package which makes it very accomadating when people move for promotions. There benifit program is very compeditive with the best companies in the industry. The senior management is commitied to making the company a better place to work every year. They stand behind improvement programs. Family values are supported and employees are encouraged to live a balanced life.

    Cons

    Some remote locations and growing pains

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you've been doing...engaging employees and building open relationships. Keep focusing on building respect for one another.

    Pros

    Management Work Life Fair Pay Company Car Work from Home Exciting Ability to develop your business No micromanagement

    Cons

    Ease of Systems (though greatly improving) Fairness to all accounts/customers Hard to move up without relocating Sometimes transparency to what's expected is absent

    Advice to Management

    My manager is the best I have ever had. Completely respectful, he has a hands-off approach which makes me work harder. Advice to upper management would be that a lot of talent is lost from forcing people to relocate in order to be considered for positions. The benefit of retained talent and loyalty would far outweigh the cost of well-planned business travel.

    Pros

    I worked for Con Agra for many yrs. As did my husband, who worked forabout 30yrs. For Con Agra. One of the best reasons for working for them is anyone that aspires to further their contribution of skills are encouraged to do so. Within or outside trainning anyone can advance. The team spirit within the company can not be matched to anything except sucess for all parties, employer and employees. Thank-you Con Agra Lamb Weston!

    Cons

    My husband was a supervisor for many yrs... What I saw was the forced rotations of shifts is extremely difficult for families with children. The children are alwYs the ones to suffer the homeless of missing their parent with only one four month period where their parents daily routines are matched to theirs. Also, its difficult to watch some work hard in a day and some seem to get paid for doing nothing, Thats for salery and union workers. Forced overtime for bid holders is a problem. and is dangerous when fituge sets in.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rotation of supervisors. It has been my observation that employees work more efficiently when they have the same bosses everyday. I was in a plant that changed names several times and have seen many ways the company would be run. When we would have the asked bosses there was a shift can do spirit. We all took pride in our shifts production, safety awards and commeroidy. The spirit died when supervisory forced rotations of supervisors.

    Pros

    Benefits are awesome, growth opportunities are plentiful, definite career path, opportunity to work with other professionals, culture and product improved a lot under Gary Rodkin.

    Cons

    Not family-oriented enough, too far from where I live, unwilling to allow telecommuting at my level, which was an analyst-level position.

    Advice to Management

    Very happy with upper management, with the exception of one individual in the beginning of my time there, and that situation was rectified. The person had been causing problems for others. Please provide telecommuting opportunities, at least on a part-time basis.

    Pros

    Everyone at ConAgra has shown their willingness to take me under their wing and develop me. They are quick to recognize and reward hard work.

    Cons

    Onboarding process was a little rough. If you are not a self starter, this may not be the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Have a formalized training plan for new hires. Otherwise, just keep up the great work. Wonderful company!
