    Pros

    I had the best manager at Ingredion that I've ever worked for. They care about their employees & everyone works as a team. It was someplace most people would want to retire from.

    Honestly there were no huge down sides.

    I have been working at Ingredion full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues and interesting work in R&D.

    Cons

    Larger corporate structure. More meaningless work and overloaded. Less caring of employee and added BS objectives. Workload has doubled with no increase in resources. Yearly objectives keep changing and are 50% BS. Difficult to achieve higher performance ratings given the ridiculous objectives that are handed down by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to handle the doubled workload that many are carrying. Add "work/life balance" to core values of the company. Give bonuses based on factors that employees can control - not on factors they cannot control.

    Pros

    I'm having trouble thinking of any other than it's a job.

    Low morale. Poor connection between employees and upper management. No programs or hope for career growth (promotion at manager's discretion).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make random checks, and actually take the time to talk to employees at all levels.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    There are many nice helpful people in the company. Work life balance are usually good in most departments. However, like any company, it all depends on your supervisor. Global company with opportunity to promote across region.

    Cons

    Working experience varies extremely in different department and location. Limited raise if you stay in the same position. Hence, not good for day-to-day jobs that have limited depth in career path. Favoritism in promotion are sometimes obvious. Outside the people on fast track, promotion frequency are low or non-existence . Pay doesn't always align with people's competency and importance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to retain talents. Give raise to talented employee and focus more on teamwork.
