Pros

Decent pay and vacation benefits

Cons

Work the supervisors to death, Don't treat employee's fair. No work life balance because of cutting positions to the bone. Medical insurance for a company this large should be better

Advice to Management

Listen to employee's

    Pros

    Pay & Benefits & ability to move to different positions

    Cons

    Forced ranking & use of performance improvement plans to fire people suddenly deemed not performing but had previously done well

    Advice to Management

    Management & hr needs to value every employee & stop the forced ranking. This treatment is the reason CAG will never be a top Omaha company to work for- people no longer come first, but are seen as dispensable cogs.


  2. Great opportunities for Interns, Fast paced and often under pressure. Biased due to termination after 15+ years.

    Pros

    ConAgra still has a pension program, few companies do. If you can stick around the retirement benefits can be significant. ConAgra also matches 50% of the the first 6% you contribute to your 401k ConAgra encourages learning new. Instituting "Agile" change methodologies. Most of the staff is really great to work with, they are willing to help with what they can, and go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Often unreasonable deadlines are assigned to projects without knowledge of the amount of work and supporting resources required. ConAgra is trying to address this with the "Agile" methodology, but some of these projects have "dragged on" until it was determined the project was not producing enough, so it was terminated, or started over. This could just be a "learning curve" issue. Though ConAgra promotes "standard measurements" for performance reviews, there is still a great deal of influence of "who likes or dislikes you" determining "final grades". At least in IT the managers change every 6-18 months, some may consider this positive, but it there is always a "learning curve" with each manager, and the priorities change making it difficult to work on long term goals.

    Advice to Management

    A little more longevity with managers on a team would be a positive. When a manager writes their end of year review, the employee should be allowed to see it and present evidence if the employee believes items in the review are inaccurate. The manager could change or not change the review, but at least they would be informed.
