Approves of CEO

I worked at Conagra Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great corporate culture, good benefits, room for advancement if you're good and patient.

Cons

Location, location, location! Omaha is only fit for a few good men and women. I know many folks that have moved on because they don't want to live in Oma-Hell

Advice to Management

Need to be more flexible with where Director level roles reside. I would still be with ConAgra if Naperville had been an option for my next role. I miss the company every day!

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

    Pros

    Fair Salary, Vacation Time and if you're in the right division decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Disorganized Company with Massive Integration and Change. Systems very manual, if you're in the wrong division, you're in trouble. ConAgra has a very difficult time prioritizing, therefore everything gets piled on your plate.

    Advice to Management

    Set a priority and stick to it.


  2. "Great opportunities for Interns, Fast paced and often under pressure. Biased due to termination after 15+ years."

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    ConAgra still has a pension program, few companies do. If you can stick around the retirement benefits can be significant.
    ConAgra also matches 50% of the the first 6% you contribute to your 401k
    ConAgra encourages learning new.
    Instituting "Agile" change methodologies.
    Most of the staff is really great to work with, they are willing to help with what they can, and go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Often unreasonable deadlines are assigned to projects without knowledge of the amount of work and supporting resources required.
    ConAgra is trying to address this with the "Agile" methodology, but some of these projects have "dragged on" until it was determined the project was not producing enough, so it was terminated, or started over. This could just be a "learning curve" issue.
    Though ConAgra promotes "standard measurements" for performance reviews, there is still a great deal of influence of "who likes or dislikes you" determining "final grades".
    At least in IT the managers change every 6-18 months, some may consider this positive, but it there is always a "learning curve" with each manager, and the priorities change making it difficult to work on long term goals.

    Advice to Management

    A little more longevity with managers on a team would be a positive.
    When a manager writes their end of year review, the employee should be allowed to see it and present evidence if the employee believes items in the review are inaccurate. The manager could change or not change the review, but at least they would be informed.
