Approves of CEO

Pros

Strong values (emphasis on safety, integrity, community involvement)

Focus on employee development in performance system

A stable/ growing company in a solid industry. Has weathered economic downturn well and did not cut benefits.

The Company is moving from a commodity based Ag business towards more of an innovation driven soutions provider - the culture is changing, and for the better.

Good communication from management on direction of company - especially during a large acquisition

Cons

Happy with commitment to work life balance that is shown through 'Summer Hours' program at some locations. Could be even better by adding additional flexibility, including telecommuting be more of an option.

    "Great people and culture, little to no upward mobility and promotion"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good people to work with, employees as people are valued and treated fairly well, pay is decent, benefits package is good.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, no accountability for Director level and higher with regards to if their department is thriving or failing and why. Seen alot of turnover in some departments with no consulting of other employees as to what is going on. Culture is a bit old school and old boys' club mentality, lack of any mentorship by management - just sort of left to your devices and even if you show competitency, tasks are just taken away and you are held back professionally. Sometimes management acts as if its in an upper eschelon 'club' of sorts and that no 'regular' employee could possibly do their job thereby holding people back even though they have decades of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to develop the staff you currently have instead of hiring outside. I felt that the management didn't respect you if you weren't hired as a manager and favored the phrase "well, you're not 'ready' for promotion". With many employees being long term this cannot possibly be the case for everyone. It is rare to see the commoners become management and if they do, its after being there 9+ years with a ton of ass kissing the right person and begging.

    I worked at Ingredion as an intern

    Pros

    All employees were kind and cared about others, learned a lot, made some great contacts for my future career path

    Cons

    Occasionally I was expected to work more that 40 hours a week but I wasn't supposed to put in for overtime

    Advice to Management

    The company was managed very well and the internship program is amazing. Everyone helped me learn the ropes and was eager to teach
