    Pros

    Average benefits for a fortune 500 company. Hassle free employment for the most part. Pay is a little above average for the area. Could be an excellent place to work but to many politics! Management more concerned about looking good and climbing corporate ladder!

    Cons

    Company punishes every one for a few bad employees and never rewards or mentions good employees for job well done. Employees not allowed to purchase company stock. Company only concern is making the stock holders happy at the expense of its employees. Employees treated as a number. Company more concerned about blaming employees than finding solutions. Company does not care what employees think about the products they make and corporate has one size fits all mentality for all their plants. Very unorganized in my opinion. Blind leading the blind operation.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and you get as good as you give!

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary in Omaha is awesome

    Cons

    Fewer people for the same amount of work, decision makers can't articulate what they want, limited, if any, development, limited work perks, no travel, no catered lunches, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your high performers otherwise they will leave. I've seen so many talented people leave and tribal knowledge is lost. Rebuilding (if possible) takes so long and performance suffers.

    The company has taken its food safety failures with Peter Pan seriously

    Stick to what you are good at

    Pros

    WAS a well run company who cared for its employees. No longer.

    Cons

    Sean Connolly is going to destroy this company like every other company he has put his hands on. Anybody who doesn't know that is fooling themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Polish you resumes. Your turn is coming.

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time

    Pros

    There are benefits, the business is growing and the job is secure. There are countless promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Salaried medical benefits are very expensive. There is a lot of micromanagement for employees to justify their job much of it just makes it difficult to accomplish what you need to do.

    Pros

    Solid benefits and solid work. Strong business with a very large employee base. Long term potential is there with lots of areas to move into. Good work life balance as they offer plenty of time off from the day you start.

    Cons

    Political stereotypes are huge. Growth is very limited based on required time not proven potential. To often great talent is lost due to typical large corporate policies. The other problem is they pay under the industry standard for size of this company in the area. Longevity of the company is questionable due to recent changes in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and reward proven success prior to simply time employed.
