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

Pros

The team, the management, the principles, the relationship between management and employee...I can't list everything.

Cons

Some aspects towards project management and transfer of a project to operational control need to be ironed out. The process can be seen as clunky at times, but I know that they engineering group is fine tuning the VSU process to eliminate this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to develop the skill sets of the floor employee. Conagra has some truly dedicated employees (we see this every year as we celebrate employees with 40+ years) and they all want to see true success. Don't lose focus on this, it was an honor and a privilege to work with your Waterloo team.

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good pay for what you do.

    Cons

    Management, especially at the corporate level is clueless when it comes to what goes on at the plant level. All they care about are their own metrics no matter if it is a hindrance to productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your lower level employees since they are the ones that make the company it's profit.
