    I have been working at Ingredion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong management, strategy and sustained success. I started six years ago when our stock price was around $30 per share. Today we are trending around $137 per share and this is due to the talent we have around the world. Good collaboration and focus on continuous improvement. Development of skills is a priority and building business acumen.

    Cons

    Some employees are comfortable and resist change. Continue to focus on technology and innovation

    Advice to Management

    Remember to take time to celebrate. In addition to shareholder value we should celebrate all the wonderful sustainability and local charity events we lead.
