    Pros

    Stable job with decent benefits

    cold corporate environment, difficult for promotions

    Advice to Management

    Review promotions and better define the process. Current management has no defined process so instead, they just keep making up new rules and never promoting

    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Where I worked was on the verge of shutting down, and still is to this day. But the work wasn't that hard, and it paid the best in my area. If you don't mind putting in all of the hours, and not having much of a home life (wife and kids), then this place is definitely for you. And the benefits are wonderful too!

    Cons

    Poor management and supervisors. Unfortunately, they care more about numbers than anything, and most of the people who have been there for decades suffer for it, because of poor decision making, having to pick up the slack and finish first shift's job, plus get theirs done. They are a Union company, and violate so many union rules and policies on a regular basis that it's ridiculous, however it's more of a hassle to get anything done about it so most of those people just hold their tongue, complain about it, and let it keep happening. And they cut a lot of corners to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little more concern for the employee's psyche. At the same time, make better decisions in who you hire, and for those who are trying to make an honest living, give them the appreciation they deserve.

    Pros

    Good benefits, fun atmosphere. Really strives to take care of the hourly associates. Lots of room for growth.

    Benefits although good are outrageously expensive for salaried people. Super strict double standard for salaried people as well.

    Advice to Management

    Quit dragging things out, when something needs addressed do it.
