    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, OT for supervisors, total income 70k+.
    Not micro managed. Hours are great, flexibility if needed, and great benefits with low costs for salary folks. Obviously only option is 401k so No retirement or pension.

    Cons

    HR at plant level doesn't take care of hourly workers as they should. Union and management rarely agree causing a high amount of disgruntled employees. When issues are resolved then it's not communicated causing more stress for supervisors especially off shifts. Advancement is not a reality unless relocated.

    Good people, but poor results driven by bad strategies and ineffective senior leader

    Former Employee - Mid-level Leader in Omaha, NE

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and - for the most part - day to day working conditions. Talk about operating principles and ways we win, but senior leaders don't walk the talk.

    Cons

    Really nice people, but organization is driven by culture of "go along to get along" vs. driving for results. Results focused individuals don't have very long lives - they don't fit in. Those who don't "fit in" end up finding themselves marginalized and either out on their own or out with the next reorganization. Leaders promote "cliques" and don't mask indifference or disdain for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at who is leaving - and why. Exit surveys won't give you the answers.

    Pros

    Good Pay, some good people. You will learn a lot.. good experience, resume builder. Good advancement opportunities if you know how to play the game.

    Cons

    Style over substance makes you move up. The organization is very slow moving and shows consistently poor results. Top Heavy organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only saving grace is that a new CEO is coming in. Hope he/she prunes some dead wood, (people and brands). Slash SG&A by 30%. We are too top heavy and spend too much time aligning stakeholders and giving updates. Too much of a CYA environment. Be trusting of and trustworthy to your employees. Culture and Values are lived, not painted on a wall. Your employees do see the difference.
