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

    Pros

    If the opportunity doesn't exist within the company and you are a talented employee, they will create it for you. The company pays very well, benefits are comprehensive and moderately priced for employees. There is a ton of work to do but you will learn a lot and be be more professional and well-rounded for it.

    Cons

    Company was Recently acquired by ConAgra so it is unclear how that will affect employees in the long run. Most corporate employees were laid off as part of the merger/acquisition, but for those who remain, time will tell. I was a layoff, which is tough, but it doesn't dissolve the positive experience I gained.

    Advice to Management

    Love the old Ralcorp guard. Wish they would form a new company.

    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.

    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.
