Former Employee - Cost Engineer in Omaha, NE

I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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