No opinion of CEO

Pros

Financially sound, well established company in an excellent line of business (private label foods) to be in especially during a medium to mild economic recession. Many people have switched to private label foods due to a high level of unemployment, and continually climbing gas prices, etc. Lots of oportunity for growth within Ralcorp due to constant changes and aquisitions by the company..

Cons

Major lacks of communications between the Corporate office and the divisional food manufacturing plants. Significant performance issues as a result of the communication issues. No clear direction from the top.

Advice to Management

Bring the multitude of high level managment teams in the divisions and corporate office down to a smaller number of individuals who actually add value to the business. Seek answers and solutions from the employees of the company that actually do the work and not from the protected Director level class of employees.

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

    Pros

    The company had a growth through Acquisition strategy, and thus grew to provide ample opportunities for all of those who wanted to grow and develop with the organization.

    Cons

    Once the company was bought by Conagra it lost its identity. The old Ralcorp spirt was no longer present. It was more of a fear that you would lose your job during the transition. Which many did. Ralcorp was a great company wish it was still around.

    Advice to Management

    Ralcorp should have done everything possible to avoid the takeover. From the outside perspective it seemed as though the steps they took was only to enrich the upper management team during the takeover. Hindsight is 20/20 but this was a bad deal for everyone involved.

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

    Pros

    Ralcorp had a strong culture that supported getting the job done in an effecient manner while working as a team. Also had excellent senior leadership.

    Cons

    Restructuring done in 201 was not sustainable and in hindsight, was probably done to make the company more attractive for acquisition.
