    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 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    While each division within the holding company was a bit different, my experience within the Cereal division was outstanding. A company that truly understood the value of working cross-functionally. Well above average leaders and work force. Great team environment, and an outstanding run of shareholder return over an extended period.

    Cons

    Would have liked to see Ralcorp play a bigger role in the community. As a top 10 St. Louis HQ, it was a relative unknown in its own city. Ill-fated, rushed and poorly-conceived restructuring plan with questionable motivation just prior to its acquisition by ConAgra served to tarnish its last days of independence.

    Advice to Management

    Sold to ConAgra in 2013, so the rest is history. Now on the selling block, once again proving that running a branded business and private label business requires deep understanding of the nuances of each.

    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.
