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

Pros

Pay and benefits are resonable. Work life balance is resonable for level of responsibility - ~50hrs week.

Cons

Good old boy club at the plant level. Complete lack of development/advancement opportunites for professional employees, especially women and minorities. Benefits such as retirement, medical retirement, vacation and PIP slashed for employees with less than 10 years of service.

Advice to Management

Invest and develop in your technical personnel. These people are your future and they want to take on more challenges. Moreover, they have the education and skills to suceed. If you don't invest in them they will take their talents to another company that will invest in them.

    I have been working at ADM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Health care, vision, dental insurance for very competitive prices. Human resources was very easy to work with.

    Cons

    Not an eight to five company. Have to come in when what you are in charge of breaks. Have to work shift early in career.


  2. "Great work with as much responsibility as you can handle as far as engineering is concerned."

    I worked at ADM full-time

    Pros

    The company has come a long way to develop an excellent safety culture. The people are great to work with very few exceptions. The engineering work was challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    Too many occasions, there were insufficient time allowed for proper scope development because of the push to get a project started and finished. It usually caused a lot of change orders and/or cost overruns.

    Advice to Management

    Too much lag time between project expenditures and data processing to adequately track CPI and/or earned value management. Need better communications between corporate and plant management when corporate makes decisions about project scope changes. (very costly)
