    I worked at ADM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some great people and learned a lot along the way. Very safety driven company, there's opportunity out there if you want to look for it.

    Cons

    Company headed in wrong direction with reduction in force. Firing good people to save money is not the way to do business.

    I worked at ADM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty nice and the all benefits are there as well. There is a day shift that is possible to get on (once you achieve seniority over your fellow technicians of course). Many days there is absolutely no work and nothing to do but to pretend to work. Some co-workers are genuinely good people.

    Cons

    Extremely hot work where you will be drenched in sweat on almost a daily basis.
    Very strict rules about anything you could imagine. Many which are broken - even cardinal rules such as major safety violations can go unpunished (if you're salary). No cell phone usage even on breaks. Senior instrument techs are rushed through there apprenticeship and finish lacking critical knowledge. Lots of serious right wing political ideas thrown at you from management and everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ones abusing their power in management... and maybe keep the ones that are doing there jobs efficiently.

    I have been working at ADM full-time

    Pros

    The company is a broad company with interesting opportunities. They offer excellent benefits. They have opportunities across the world.

    Cons

    After having layoffs in 2012, just experienced another round of layoffs targeting employees and managers with long service records. Most of the layoffs were targeted at employees with 25 to 40 years of service. They were excellent managers, employees and veterans. It was simply cost cutting. Rumors says that there is another round coming within 6 months

    Advice to Management

    Moving upper management to Chicago did not add value to the company (see share price, revenue and profit) but it allowed for laying off amazing people by delegating it to someone else. Talk about an Ivory Tower. The company has lost its Midwestern soul.
