    A lot of positive attributes hampered by disorganization and a mixed culture

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time

    Pros

    ConAgra Foods offers fairly competitive pay and benefits including bonus eligibility for the level below managers and above. They are trying to improve the culture and work environment. The CEO has brought about many improvements to the company since he started.

    Cons

    If you are coming from a process-oriented (e.g. ISO 9001) company be prepared for a serious lack of process, procedures and training. The organization is built on individuals doing what they think is best and hopefully that matches up with what management expected of you at the end of each year. Goals rarely align with your actual job function, but instead relate to obscure company goals or areas that are actually just fluff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate is top heavy. I've never seen so many directors and "bosses" of just one or two employees. A lot of money is squandered on "meeting pontificators" who rarely get anything done while actual workers are in short supply and under appreciated.
