I have been working at Ingredion full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Company is known for making acquisitions and growing globally - very profitable.
- Pay is competitive: merit increases are reasonable and significant bonuses are paid.
- CEO is focused on building shareholder value and safety.
- They like to promote within; lots of lateral moves and room to grow..
- The people are very friendly and supportive of your growth within the company.

Cons

- Depending on what group you work in, work-life balance may be challenging compared to other groups. It's a con, but this is common for most public companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should continue to devote efforts in developing their team and promoting within the company. It drives the employee to perform at exceptional levels knowing that they will be recognized and compensated for their hard work.

    I have been working at Ingredion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good focus on internal development - each employee has a midyear CAREER discussion with their manager where they discuss areas for growth...either within the job or towards a different one. This is one of the only companies I have seen do this.

    Solid business model - the leadership does a good job or helping us to understand the strategy and how we each have an impact. All of our goals are actually linked to goals above us, and so on to make sure that everyone is moving in the same direction.

    The new brand (Ingredion vs former Corn Products) is exciting and helps to show the company's new focus.

    Cons

    Ingredion offers a good work life balance...periodic casual Fridays, summer hours at some locations, and some ability to connect from home. It makes sense for some jobs to be able to work from home more often. Other jobs, it makes sense why that is not possible. Progressing the work from home policy a bit could help. Overall though, this is not a huge Con, as I feel like I can connect from home if i really need to without it being a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Continue along current path to grow business.
    - Communication to employees though quarterly global webinars is appreciated.
    - Would love to see more opportunities for Ingredion to get publicity
