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 have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pro's, only dishonest and sneaky company.

    Cons

    If you want to work for a company you have to always wonder about what they are doing behind close doors this is the company for you. Company is sneaky and sly. If they buy your company out please look for another job ASAP, In less than 2 years you will be demoted and then let go. They believe in numbers and not the quality given to their customers or consumers. What they tell you is never what you will get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and stop looking for ways to deceive your consumers and customers, and employees. People aren't as ignorant and you think they are.

    Poor supervisors and a very poorly ran plant.

    If you want to keep a plant in operation, do not turn a well ran plant over to a rookie.
