    I have been working at Green Plains

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Great vacation days. Overall great management team who will work with you and share advice to make you successful.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Only con I can think of is management tends to over analyze spending money for various projects.

    I worked at Green Plains full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None. The plant I was at was rather clueless. They think they know what they are doing. In actuality, they lie to themselves and everyone else to hide their own poorly developed management skills.

    Cons

    Plant leadership only knows how to run the plant. They are clueless about how to run anything but the equipment. High turnover lately in key roles at some plants causing chaos. If it sounds like I am a disgruntled ex employee, you are right. They lie to make sure that nothing bad is ever put out there. If you are honest, you will be gone.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at Plant Leadership and see the turnover in key roles at different plants. This is the ethanol industry, where the government wants it to succeed even though it is not entirely economical to boost this industry.

    I worked at Green Plains

    Pros

    Growing company, excellent boss! The company is growing and offers potential for advancement and learning new areas. Treats employees GREAT with breakfast on Fridays, drawings for great seats to concerts and other events.

    Cons

    Can be very busy with not much backup to help with workload as others are as busy. The lazy non workers don't seem to get noticed by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to people who really don't work that hard or sabotage others because they want to "look good" to upper management.
