Great experience with lots of development opportunities!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE (US)

I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWork Life Balance, Development Opportunities, Networking & Volunteer Opportunities, Visible Leadership who wants to hear your opinion and thoughts, promotes creativity

ConsDue to the increased emphasis on growth, the company has done a lot of aquisitions over the past few years, although good, forces a lot of change in everyone's roles.

Fast-paced, offers many challenges

Finance Manager (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE (US)

I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 5 years

ProsYou will be given ample responsibility and treated like a professional if you work and act like one. Many learning opportunities are the result of the company's many projects and constant changes. If you enjoy a fast pace and are not afraid of challenges, it could be a good opportunity for you.

ConsWell, it is based in Omaha... Hard to focus on core responsibilities as you are always working on special projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company tries to bite off too much at once. Improvement projects, acquisitions, etc. Sometimes I think that it should just focus on running the business. Acquisition of Ralcorp is proving to be a very rough ride.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Don't get stuck.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time

ProsPay is good, benefits are crap.

ConsOpportunities are lacking and management uses management cliches all the time in order to get people to just give up on talking to them.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic, back off of unnecessary projects.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to get experience

Business Development Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 5 years

ProsConAgra provides excellent brands, and plenty of internal opportunities for growth experiences for your next position elsewhere.

ConsFor aggressive, career-minded people, ConAgra will be frustrating at time. The size procedure driven culture offers a safe haven for 'career' employees, but will be difficult for aggressive professionals to navigate through without rocking the boat.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat vision and goals by CEO, but serious leadership team deficiencies. Good 'ole boy network dominates promotions and stifles growth of the business - all seems to start near the top.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
