I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

For the most part people were friendly, benefits and compensation are very good, and the job was not at all stressful.

Cons

Job position was falsely advertised, implied a high level of responsibilities and project management but turned out to be clerical data entry 95% of the time.

Advice to Management

Save yourself some money and do not hire engineers do to data entry.

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Now regarded as a brand building company...not like under previous management teams. Structure is still a bit weird. Good opportunity for advancement for high performers.

    Cons

    Every three years there is a major restructuring to take more cost out of the system. There is a lack of conviction about sticking to a strategy...as soon as the financials are off for a quarter, there is a firedrill to shift courses and abandon the annual plan. Not a training ground like a P&G, Kraft or General Mills - definitely better for experienced professionals who have gained some "seasoning" at another CPG

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their job! If you don't think they are capable, get new ones!

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people... working hard to try and find solutions to larger business / industry problems

    Cons

    Brands are struggling to change with the times. Need to be sharper with innovation, and not rely so heavily on core competencies such as canning and low cost protein.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be better change agents. CEO is talking change, but leaders are blocking it, with posturing for their own roles and departments. RQI needs an overhaul. Building new items purely on capabilities has not proven successful. Need to innovate around changing consumer needs.
