    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time (More than 3 years)


    CEO has a strong vision for company's' future. The people are great to work with. Strong commitment to developing people and promoting from within. Creative, challenging, and collaborative environment.


    Company is still going through some growing pains new CEO's vision. Change in HQ has caused some sour feelings with the employees at the old HQ location and make adapting to change slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing Conagra to innovate and take strategic risks, break down silos, and focus on tomorrow instead of yesterday.
