    I have been working at ADM full-time

    Pros

    A lot of good people in the organization.

    Cons

    Very antiquated in management methods and IT systems.
    "Good Ole Boy" network at the top.
    Very poor at employee training and development.

    Get rid of the old blood and embrace change.

    I worked at ADM full-time

    Pros

    Some good individuals work here..

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on overpaid and overrated hotshots who don't add value to the company. Advancement is a function of corporate politics, not performance. Morale is at an al-time low. No loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Leave.

    I worked at ADM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros except for health and retirement benefits...

    Cons

    Executive management turnover continually means that RIF's are part of their game. Almost 200 Sr Management positions just eliminated in August 2017 while keeping contract management on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Constant employment increase and RIF is causing major disruption to valuable projects and killing moral

    I worked at ADM part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime, nice employees. Everything else was terrible

    Cons

    Unappreciative of employees, unprofessional, harrassment

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn professionalism and stop picking favorites. Just because someone has been there longer does not make it okay for them to get away with mistakes made on the job and then for it to be put on everyone else. Also dont make one person do multiple jobs while everyone else has one job to do. This company needs to clean house on the management currently in. It would do alot better as far as losses go and more.

    I worked at ADM full-time

    Pros

    Size and scale of the company

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, good old boys style managment

    Advice to Management

    Promote competent people versus those that are political cronies and drinking buddies. I think ADMs recent performance is an indicator of the incompetence they've promoted to the top of Wild Flavors.

    Pros

    Pays well, that's about it

    Cons

    ADM injected their talentless, unfireable staff into WILD and everything has gone completely downhill. All the culture disappeared, having previously been a family owned business, and now all they care about are top line sales and answering to the investors.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to reprimand management rather than just shuffling them around to a new job when they mess up their current role

    I worked at ADM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cheap cost of living in a small city but you are in the worst state in the Union so it basically negates itself

    Cons

    Pat is incompetent. She is an expert at picking out $1000 shoes and that is about it. Started running the company into the ground with the multibillion $ "green" projects. Took her money and ran like they always do.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of IL

    Pros

    You are guarenteed job security in your position. You are paid weekly.

    Cons

    They give indication for growth, but it rarely is followed through.

    Advice to Management

    Be more truthful and keep people's careers in mind before alluding to career advancement that doesn't happen.

    Pros

    The company has a good 401k matching program and has a nice gym that can be used free of charge, decent pay

    Cons

    Terrible, lazy management. They expect you to do jobs that they don't know how to do. Sixty year old supervisor talked down to her employees. Falsified time cards, misused vacation/sick time. Sorry excuse for someone in a management position.
