I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than a year)

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.

    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.
