    The company is very large and stable. Insurance is pretty good. There are lots of different opportunities available within the company.

    Cons

    Compensation is lacking. Communication is not very good. Company can seem scatter brained and lacks focus.Some locations are in terrible spots and I would not want to live there.

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are about the only things that makes the job bearable. The pay is the only thing that keeps people at the place.

    Cons

    Treats employees very poorly. Work schedule is terible. Leadership lacks people skills and ability. The work schedule provides hardly any family time, working seven days in a row with one day off in-between.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting engineers in leadership positions. Learn to treat employees with respect and maybe they would stay around longer. Bad management breeds more bad management. Full of yes men.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, stock share, and safety.

    You never know what schedule your working, management never lets hourly rate know what days your off or if you have to work late until 15 minutes before you clock out.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Thats all i can really say in good terms. The pay is some of the best in the region if you have the stomach to deal with the cons

    Cons

    People who have worked there for many years are bitter, rude, and hateful. I believe some house cleaning is needed to get fresh workers who are more suited for the position. This includes management they have a tendancy to be napoleonic.
