I worked at Ingredion as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Friendly, Smart people.
Nice Building
Up to date software
You learn a lot about business units
Interested in employees learning about other business functions.

Cons

Lack of employee development. Often times seeks managers from outside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop and Promote from within. Do not always look to the outside for managers. Sometimes (not often) they do not know what they are doing. Other than that it is a good company with great people.

    Pros

    Great Pay, Great benefits, lots of overtime

    Cons

    Shift work, last minute 16 hour shifts.. Ingredion works on a work relief system. Which means i can come in ready for an 8 hour shift but if your relief doesnt show, then you have to stay and cover the next shift..

    I have been working at Ingredion full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have fair wages and benefits. Opportunity to work overtime.

    Cons

    Poor Communication, difficult to get day shift or promotions. Safety is too extreme to where you feel like you are being treated like a child. (Safety IS very important, but they leave no decisions to employees to make appropriate precautions on their own) Many jobs are affected by weather and you can be exposed to the elements until you go to break. They lay responsibility of the job to be covered by the employee that showed up for work if the employee for the following shift does not show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate and listen to your employees to solve problems. Don't fix safety issues by putting more responsibility on the employee. Fix what is unsafe. Stop punishing employees for showing up for work. This only causes more absenteeism.
