    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Exposure to management -SAP Experience -Exposure to multiple branches of business

    Cons

    -Jump through hoops to have any chance of getting promoted -Weak pay scale and bonus structure -Targets are constantly moving -Collaboration is needed to get everything done, yet no one ever "has time" for you

    Advice to Management

    -Have a person's actual day-to-day manager decide on pay raises and promotions rather than a room full of people who never interact with this person. Everything is decided by a bunch of bs entries on a spreadsheet. Very corporate and bureaucratic in this sense.


  2. Satisfactory advancement opportunities

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some ability to affect change in the plant at a supervisory level Good culture of quality in the plant Reasonable efforts to train and build talent in-house 24/7 operation on shift work means a reliable schedule of 40-50hrs/week Time off / Work scheduling is very flexible

    Cons

    Managers promoted too quickly up the ranks leads to some poor plant leadership Too much red tape & delay on fixing problems / not enough communication on spending priorities

    Advice to Management

    Have a 15 min meeting each week to listen to ideas from your sups and give a "yes, no, let me think about it" answer to their ideas. Walk the floor on all shifts, especially when large issues arise Only ask of your workers what you are willing to follow-through on - rolling out a new program might look good for you in the short run, but it won't pay dividends if people don't feel like their efforts are worth the sweat they give it.
