Lack of trust among some employees. Big corporation with some bureaucracie and time-consuming processes. Hard to recruit and retain talent in headquarter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walk the talk. Keep working on a culture that fosters trust, respect, and self-empowerment.

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time

    Pros

    Large Budgets, best-in-class technologies, and high-performance DC 2.0 compute platform. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Top-heavy corporate structure, understaffed, overworked, hostile and political work environment. Poor performance rating platform. The business side controls every aspect of IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More workers, less management!

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked two years at plant that was shutdown in 2011. Company did superlative job of providing support, training, job hunting support, and severance pay, starting a year in advance of shutdown, for all employees.
    It was understood that Conagra wanted to do right by everyone, and did.

    Cons

    Supervisory work days were initially scheduled 12 hours a day: in a 24 hour environment, but were usually 14+ hours, due to meetings before and after.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way too much management turnover at all levels. Half of positions are held long-term, but others turnover frequently, particularly among floor supervisors.
    Ability to move within the company is good, and should continue.
