    I worked at ADM full-time

    Pros

    Great training, leadership, and strategy. My managers were all excellent and intelligent-really knew the industry.

    ADM is a large company, so it is easy to get focused on your single area.

    Pros

    Out and back loads. Home every weekend unless its busy season. Benefits and pay are almost unbeatable. For otr drivers have assigned trucks that are late model.

    Cons

    Everything changes on a moments notice. Unless your hooked to the load and rolling it could change. Don't have an accident its almost 100% you'll be on the streets. "Accident investigation" almost always finds driver at fault.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in college guys that know nothing for safety. We miss guys like Bob For an that knows what its all about and can get being the wheel and drive if needed to

    I worked at ADM full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation, competitive salaries, different challenges each day, great team with lots of experience and a willingness to help new teammates that aren't jerks.

    Cons

    My manager allowed another co-worker to yell and scream at other co-workers. It made for a pretty hostile work environment. It also felt like he played favorites when he invited all of the guys, weekly, to do things outside of work but never invited the women. He also was lenient with one gentleman in particular and would allow him to call out sick once a month (sometimes more frequently) after partying too hard.
    Worked a lot of hours, weekends, nights to get everything done but really enjoyed the folks I was working with.
    Was told I had to move to Decatur for another opportunity with the company.

    I worked at ADM full-time

    Pros

    There was always more than enough work to do because ADM is almost always a busy company. We were like a family. Made some long-lasting friendships at the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes, upper management doesn’t listen to the needs of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your subordinates. Find out what issues are going on in different departments so there can be better communication and understanding.

    Pros

    Excellent trainee program. Lots of opportunities to learn how to trade.

    Cons

    Very asset driven, lots of layers to management. If asked to move, you are expected to move.

    Advice to Management

    Your assets are overvalued, they're an anchor around your neck. The core of your business is killing you.
