Current Employee - IT Analyst in Omaha, NE

I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Company is very good, outside of the IT area...Good place to work as long as you stay away from IT (Internville), of course unless your an intern.

Cons

Technical abilities have been downgraded, devalued. If you love technology STAY AWAY...If you love running meetings and project management your golden...just don't expect to be valued for your technical skills. Create a document and get interns to execute technical efforts is in vogue..it's failing but in vogue just the same.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at your trend, realign, your sapping your ability to function effectively in the IT environment.

    Pros

    Latest technologies to work with

    Cons

    No direction overall in IT. CTO has no sense on how to run an IT dept. Waste of shareholders money in unefficeint technologies. SAP startegic partner, will buy anything SAP sells.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the incompetent technologies and individuals in the IT dept. and do what makes sense.

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at ConAgra- my co-workers were always willing to help and were very transparent about expectations and goals. ConAgra does a great job of casting a company vision and seeking employee engagement

    Cons

    Communication between the corporate site in Omaha and the plants could be improved. Other than that, I don't have any criticism about ConAgra.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to collaborate with plant leadership
