Good job for the Decatur area - horrible job compared to anywhere else
Various administrative and operations (Former Employee), DecaturJune 18, 2014
Pros: 8-4:30 typical work day
Cons: greedy corporate culture, treat employees poorly, terrible hr department from the top to the bottom with too much power and no ethics
The workload is typical of any corporate environments... slow on some days, super busy on others. Management really leans on capable individuals to get the real work done while the large majority of people who work there are average (at best).

The worst scenario you can be in is one where you are a high performer and management is confident you want – more... to stay in the area. Pay and salary reviews are a joke compared to anywhere outside of Decatur. Once the move is made to Chicago the company will probably experience significant turnover because more employees will be located near companies that have much better cultures.

Also, this company treats minorities (including women) really poorly. They compensate for this by putting a woman as CEO and a latino as COO. If you look at the next several layers of management, it's almost all white men, with a few token exceptions. This company recently gutted its entire Compliance and Ethics Department. – less

Very productive
Purchasing Agent (College Student) (Former Employee), Clinton, IAFebruary 19, 2013
Pros: had our own lunch room in the purchasing department.
Cons: short breaks
I worked in the purchasing department at ADM for college help. A typical day there was working on invoices and going down to there mail room to sort all there incoming mail to all different kinds of places in the factory. I would note invoices as well as putting in correct payments into there maximo system. I learned a lot about there maximo system – more... and how much mail came through there. Management was great; always there when needed. Great co-workers; very pleasant to be around. The job duties I had weren't to bad just learning there maximo system and making sure the correct payments in the right places. I enjoyed learning and meeting new people when I was there. – less
