    Pros

    The benefits package as well as the flexibility. I feel it is very important that a company be able to work with you on personal issues as needed. Teleworking is also a great benefit! Archer Daniels Midland also opens up doors for opportunities outside of the normal day to day activities. They bring in outside speakers for events and take care of their employees. For the last two years every employee of the company has received a bonus following the fiscal year report. Pat Woertz and the board of directors know that ADM would not be where it is today without the colleagues that work for the company. This sort of appreciation shows that ADM understands that there is more that just money to be made but also building relationships.

    Cons

    From time to time communication can be an issue. Some departments or locations may hear news before others or the rest may never hear the news. Pat has done a great job trying to turn this around. She gets out in front of her colleagues as much as possible and sends out regular communications via the email system. Pat also made a great effort to visit outside locations and to get to know those who work for ADM. Even with these great strides, more needs to be done. Information needs to flow freely through the company. There is not one place that you can find all announcements. They are spread out on the intranet or on bulletin boards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ADM is headed in the right direction with the look at the diversification of feedstocks. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    good experience. A good place to start right out of college. the company is very large and has alot of people with good experience. time off is never a problem. this is however dependent apon location. wide variety of jobs and movement between different kinds of jobs is possible. worldwide company which provides opportunities to relocate.

    Cons

    career advancement is very slow. pay is below the average. turnover is very high which means that you are constantly training new hires. Very few pay grades which means that you are going to get cost of living raise every year and never see a pay increase based on experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare wages in the industry and supply the employees with this wage.
