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

Pros

Big company that taught me how to work with others, attractive salary.

Cons

Entered into a technical role but was not given any responsibilities and was a burden on other employees. Employees treated me as if they were babysitting me and I consider this to be my worst internship experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The internship program was flawed when I worked there in 2010/2011. I had a boss in my building and then a mentor who was really too busy to reach out to me and check on how things were going. By the time he found out about the situation I was too embarrassed to do anything and tossed in the towel. I resigned without ever going to clean out my desk. Additionally, there was a problem with my paycheck from day one and I was being overpaid. This issue was never addressed until I quit and ConAgra came chasing after me for the money. I usually recommend that Computer Science students avoid ConAgra for internships due to my experience.

    Wonderful employees, great legacy breads, HORRIBLE management with no concept of marketing.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start a career, learn about cutting edge technology (although poorly executed)

    Cons

    The worst healthcare coverage that was expensive, extremely HOT manufacturing environment (employee comfort of no concern to management/too cheap to install exhaust fans). No concern for employee safety (see Garner, NC). Can't move up without managers approval, and with constant turnover, managers are more concerned about keeping status quo. Work 12-16 hour days 6-7 days per week with no additional compensation. Below average pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire directors and VP's that understand operations and marketing, then put them to work!

    Re-organize some of the hourly pay structures, shifting toward pay-for-performance.
