I worked at Conagra Brands full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Pay & Benefits & ability to move to different positions

Cons

Forced ranking & use of performance improvement plans to fire people suddenly deemed not performing but had previously done well

Advice to Management

Management & hr needs to value every employee & stop the forced ranking. This treatment is the reason CAG will never be a top Omaha company to work for- people no longer come first, but are seen as dispensable cogs.

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company offers a great Work life balance, benefits and the employee people managers are really nice and great to work for.

    Cons

    There is a lot of Micro management for day to day activities. They offer a lot of initial benefits to attract people to Omaha which is a great place but people who are used to the action of big cities would feel a little deserted here.

    Advice to Management

    None

    "A lot of positive attributes hampered by disorganization and a mixed culture"

    Pros

    ConAgra Foods offers fairly competitive pay and benefits including bonus eligibility for the level below managers and above. They are trying to improve the culture and work environment. The CEO has brought about many improvements to the company since he started.

    Cons

    If you are coming from a process-oriented (e.g. ISO 9001) company be prepared for a serious lack of process, procedures and training. The organization is built on individuals doing what they think is best and hopefully that matches up with what management expected of you at the end of each year. Goals rarely align with your actual job function, but instead relate to obscure company goals or areas that are actually just fluff.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate is top heavy. I've never seen so many directors and "bosses" of just one or two employees. A lot of money is squandered on "meeting pontificators" who rarely get anything done while actual workers are in short supply and under appreciated.
