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.

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