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 (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.

    I worked at ConAgra Foods as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Friendly place to work
    - Good first job to learn about production systems
    - Technology was easy to learn about

    Cons

    - ConAgra utilized a cross-department rotation program for the interns. This could be unhelpful towards career development if placed on a group that didn't require or couldn't utilize interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow interns (and full-time employees) to chose from a available list where to rotate to.
