I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The floor employees are great people to work with

Cons

Upper Management has a good ole boy club. Lacking people skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to the upper management is to go back to school and learn how to be good leaders not members of a totalitarian regime.

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time

    Pros

    Great brands that have a lot of potential.
    Fantastic R&D and Supply Chain groups that work well together.
    Good benefits and flexible work/life balance.

    Cons

    Centralized decision making that is slow, risk averse and generally not as well informed as it believes it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly embrace "Teach & Trust". With every decision having to go up to a Sr. VP or President, you will never be nimble, nor will you have any truly amazing new products. The lack of empowerment results in churn, lost opportunities, frustration, and ideas that had potential for greatness being compromised into boring offerings.

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits, and the company values are outstanding. There is a broad portfolio of branded products, commodities processing, food service, and private label business, which enables one to touch the entire consumer foods industry from one location.

    Cons

    The company is risk averse, and tends to shy away from strategic investments in favor of tactical responses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategy of where you want to see your products and 5 years and have your people develop road maps to get there.
