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

    Pros

    Huge push for work life balance. Operating principles and ways we win are meaningful and succinct; helps employees focus on what is really important and provides a guideline for all interactions.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings. In many cases there are meetings about meetings. Like most other companies there are occasional instances of poor communication.

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance and summer hours are the most positive point.

    Cons

    -Worst medical plan I have ever seen, and out of pocket is huge.
    -Growth opportunity is not at all there, and lots of internal politics.
    -Senior management just buying new tools irrespective of its usefulness, and later scrapping most of them as they were not able to use them properly.
    - Management don't focus on building what they have instead buy a new tool even existing system can provide all functionality what is needed.
    - Culture is not rewarding just expecting the good work.
