    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time

    Pros

    Solid benefits, base salary, hitting bonus, new hires in a good place. Making a number of smart moves on resetting the base.

    Cons

    still cutting people, workloads getting worse, management an old white guys network - with a fraternity house style - you're in or you are out

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your top management layer - still obviously too layered - then either buy to expand or sell ... oh and when you say act with integrity 10 times a week - you probably aren't doing so

    Nice people, most came from other companies, very few with more than 5 years at ConAgra.

    Leadership not very strategic, nor were they very good at collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Need to sell many under performing brands

    Pros

    Family feel, great co-workers, healthy environment

    Cons

    Constant political infighting, large gap between senior leadership and "those who know" protected by a band of good ol' boys, good ol' boys like to "talk the talk" - not so much about "walking the walk", loyalties get in the way of progress

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what advice to give, damage has been done

    Pros

    Downtown location, gives us the big city feel. great for lunch and happy hours. Good people... but sad to see good people struggling under poor management.

    Cons

    It's sad what has happened to the culture . I moved downtown to fix my commute, but I can't believe what happens here every day. People don't know what to do to fix the business, and are just "faking it" for the shareholders. It seems clear that the strategy is to sell, once they milk the company for all the PERKS that the big boys in the corner offices are giving themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and be done with it. It's clear that CEO cannot fix it. Soon enough, there won't be anymore dust to kick up and hide the financials of a company under collapse. It feels like the plan is to sell... Please just do it already, and let us get on with our lives.

    Pros

    Good pay. free samples, many shifts

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime, and shut downs, too many rules on things that don't affect production. Cleaned house of top wage earners then lowered the pay of that job. No loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting a few no it alls run the plant, listen to the employees that actually do the job,

    Pros

    Company is finally back on track and headed in the right direction. Office space is amazing. Renewed focus and new CEO is great (despite poor rating right now due to reorgs)

    Cons

    Legacy employees are stuck and are not considered for internal roles and promotions. Seems like all they want to do is hire new people.

    Some of the new SLT unapproachable and cold.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path but embrace legacy employees and give them a chance to show what they can do.

    Pros

    Opportunity to be part of changing the way we go to market. You need to embrace change.

    Cons

    Takes time to change a large organization but we're making progress. Lot of hiring outside of company vs internal promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees and allow flexibility in work life balance.
