    I have been working at Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big, well-known company. Will get lots of experience fast, even right out of college. Multiple locations throughout the US.

    Cons

    Will get as much work out of you as possible without title change or raise. Continue to cut back resources to see how lean the plants can run. Not willing to invest in the manufacturing plants or the employees who work there. Boys club mentality. At best apathy, and at worse disregard for safety. (Love to talk about it, but not a lot of real action.)

    I worked at Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great Health Insurance, 401k, and Vacation.

    Cons

    Nepotism is terrible. It doesn't matter how long you've worked there...if someone else's Dad is someone important...you don't stand a chance. They promote their problems instead of firing them. They reverse discriminate. I overheard management said they would not hire a white male to fill a position, even if they were the most qualified. New upper management doesn't care about customer service.
