    Great management and training. Great work life balance. Fantastic benefits! Love working for a innovative company that listens to new ideas. Fantastic cross function groups to collaborate with.

    Not enough travel opportunity. If you have concerns it's difficult to see anything handled as far as change with human resources

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to recognize your people and accomplished

    Pros

    The speed to decisions has improved tremendously (bureaucracy is a thing of the past)! You have the opportunity to work on some pretty amazing things if you are willing to raise your hand. The new office space promotes collaboration, and the energy is infectious!

    Cons

    The company is still working out the kinks. You need to be nimble and willing to roll up your sleeves to work in this culture. We work hard, but the trade-off is worth it!

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

    Pros

    Sadly, I can't think of any post CEO change

    Cons

    Depressing place to be with all the dismantling of anything to do with developing the people, diversity or inclusion. They went from a culture of development and investment to a 'you are on your own' approach.

    Advice to Management

    Short term gains don't always pan out in the long run. Slashing jobs and programs to pay for the relocation of HQ to Chicago seems short sighted and self serving by a CEO who lives in Chicago.

    Pros

    Environment is fairly relaxed.

    Cons

    Technology is out of date. The company doesn't know whether they are using Agile, Waterfall, KANBAN, etc. They like to mix these development styles and use them improperly, defeating the purpose.
    Conference rooms are impossible to book. Office is noisy because people are always on the phones. Probably not anymore, though, because they fired everyone.

    Advice to Management

    You should not have fired everyone.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. The people are great to work with. Very professional and results driven. Rewarding company for those who work hard. Would definitely work for them again.

    Overall a good company to work for. You won't get rich working for them, but will make a healthy living. Many job losses over the past couple of year, but has stabilized now.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Conagra Brands as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interns were well respected at ConAgra and had access to consistent mentorship and guidance. I got to work on a couple meaningful projects, which gave me the skills I needed to land my full time position. There were also tons of extracurriculars that gave me better insight into the business and the industry that I really appreciated.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of structure around the switching of roles. I worked one role for 7 months, and the next only for 3. These switches happened at different times for different interns too, so people were always joining and leaving teams, which was a bit disorienting.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend management to give the interns more ownership and visibility into the role selection process. And I would recommend that offers for full time positions go out earlier, before the interns get antsy and look around for (or accept) other jobs.
