Pros

Corn products employees good people that are generally a pleasure to work with.
Corn products is strong financially, and has a good CEO.

Cons

Good old boy club, if you aren't part of it, it is very hard to get promoted.
Pay within company is not equal, same job titles have more responsibilities and pay does not reflect this, the only thing that will move you up or get you higher pay is to be part of the club.
Fake jobs are created for management. A job will be created so they can promote one of the club that already has a promotion coming when another higher up is retiring(without posting the job to others internally), but they don't wait for the real position to actually open. Once the retirement happens, the fake job is dissolved, but they have paid for a fake job and high salary for months.
They don't follow their promote from within policy. Outsiders are interviewed during the promote from within deadline. HR seems to follow what plant management wants to do instead of following policy.

Advice to Management

Recognize your employees for the great success they have helped create. Follow policies and corn products values which include integrity, and respect. Drop the dead weight. Stop micro managing and trust the people you hired for the positions they are in, if you can't then maybe its time to find someone else or train the people you have to build your own confidence in them. Review the qualifications of management you currently have, many job requirements are overlooked for those in the club.
