Current Employee - Consumer Insights Director in Naperville, IL

Pros

Many Brands to support (provides opportunity), great pay and benefits, flexible work environment (work from home, tele-commute, etc.).

Cons

Being in the consumer goods/food industry provides challenges in terms of commodity prices, and food is a very competitive world (up against Kraft, Mondelez, Hillshire Brands).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've done a lot for all the employees, and are pretty progressive in your thinking. But need to figure out how to provide on-going support to key brands vs, trying to spread resources across all brands. Need to figure out the key to consistent growth in a turbulent environment.

    Pros

    Pay & Benefits. Hourly employees: ( some of the better people I have met).

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from the main hourly employees. Poor communication from management to employees creates difficult work environment. Management promotion is decided not by the most skilled/qualified person but by who can make themselves look the best even if they are not qualified for the position. Conflicting policies on how to do a task create a disorganized workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your hourly employees many of them have been their for many years and have tons of experience running their equipment. If the hourly employees were listened to it would substantially increase productivity and moral.

    Pros

    People are great to work with. Management is flexible on work hours and accommodating when situations requiring time off occur.

    Cons

    The path to advancement has requirements (internal certifications) that are not offered making advancement pretty much impossible. They don't value experience outside of ConAgra when promoting. There are no full time Project Managers limiting any Project Management work to minor tasks such as release scheduling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully embrace Project Management. Weigh past experience when considering promotions.
