I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I learned a lot from my experience in Brand Management, in terms of how to own and run the P&L, and in regards to base business blocking and tackling of problems as they relate to distribution and velocity. Even as an ABM, you get as much responsibility and autonomy as a Brand Mgr or Sr. Brand Mgr., so it's sink or swim!

Cons

The culture is not so great at the corporate office in Omaha. Most senior leaders, when I was there a few yrs ago, in the Brand Management group rarely showed appreciation for the work that was done by the people below them and communication of information up and down the ranks was horrible. However, HR was working on improving the culture, but it will be a long, slow work in progress.

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

    Pros

    Great relocation package. Managment is very supportive and cares deeply about your development. Huge efforts made to keep interns engaged and active. They will offer job offers to almost all interns in the program.

    Cons

    Obviously if you are in manufacturing, plan to work in very rural communities. I didnt see this as a bad thing, but some might be driven crazy living in a farming town. Your experince will also very greatly based on which location you are at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in the internship program as you have been doing. Conagra was voted as having a top 100 internship program for a reason and I think it really shows to those who experinced it.
