Loved the People I worked with
HR Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Dickson, TNJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: great compensation
Cons: expensive benefits
I loved everything I did at ConAgra and I learned so much in the 3 years I was there. New Management wanted to weed out the salary people and bring in hourly, so I did not agree with how things were being handled. There was no part of my job that I found hard in any way. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I worked with and our family atmosphere.

Line Leader/Continuous Skills Development Lead (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEJanuary 21, 2014
I was the Production Supervisor on the floor for a specific product line. Managed & motivated employees to perform work safely & efficiently while conforming to company policies. People were great to work with & enjoyed going to work. Hardest part of the job was starting out on night shifts & juggling family life. Enjoyed making a difference in the – more... company & in my co-workers. – less

Maintenance Department Troy Ohio
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee), Troy, OHJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: being degraded, long hours, no time off, micro managed, 1 pay raise in 4 years
A typical day consisted of maintaining and keeping equipment running. Equipment isn't very sophisticated, mostly conveyors. Parts inventory was always a challenge. I was a maintenance supervisor and was micro managed to a point I didn't know could exist. The worst part of my day was when the maintenance manager came in in the morning and imposed his – more... daily screaming and degrading session with the maintenance supervisors. I consider his rants work place violence and they couldn't figure why a union was banging on their door! Meetings between managers and hourly workers in the maintenance department were non-existent except for the two over a four year period in which they were told how little the department was getting accomplished and they were an embarrassment. If you wanted a weekend off it had to be taken as vacation except for the every other weekend you were off. One pay raise in four years service. The best part of my day was going home for what was left of the day. – less

Sanitation Supervisor (Current Employee), El Paso, Tx.January 15, 2014
A typical day at work would be scheduling the sanitation crew around production on a day to day basis.
I learned more about ajacent line cleaning which is a challange in itself.
I have been a strong coach for my co-workers and have brought the sanitation dept. to a higher level.
the most enjoyable part of my job would be when I leave the facility and – more... know that it is clean and and is food safe. – less

That job went down hill when ConAgra bought it out. Safety wasn't priority number one, production was. Unprofessional environment.

Inventory Clerk (Former Employee), Dickson, TNJanuary 4, 2014
Pros: co-workers, breaks always on time, advancement
Cons: n/a
I loved my job with ConAgra Foods. There was great people I saw everyday and very loyal to the company. I started on the assembly line before I was an inventory clerk. I loved both sides of my job. I enjoyed being the clerk more due to the fact that I always had something to do. I stayed busy and never had a dull day at work. My co-workers helped me – more... alot when I started to get me in the hang of everything. The hardest part of my job would be when I had to fix someone elses mistakes, it made my job twice as hard. – less

Too much politics and old guard
Salaried Employee (Current Employee), Milton, PADecember 26, 2013
Pros: wide variety of experience
Cons: only way to get a raise is to transfer to another location
While the workplace consists of many intelligent and hard working people and there is a great deal of challenge and experience to be gained here, there is a lot of problem with stifling potential and failing to reward efforts.

Overall Good company - but management glitch
Finance (Current Employee), IllinoisDecember 11, 2013
Pros: summer hour fridays, flexible hours (depends on manager/location)
Cons: in-experienced management, scattered on how to achieve company vision, poor culture, lack of diversity
Overall solid company to work for with promising future. Company operates in silo's with lack of positive culture. Senior leadership has great vision and plans for future, but poor execution on how to get there.

Willing to consider new technologies where it fits a business need.
Systems and Network Analyst (Former Employee), Omaha, NENovember 15, 2013
Pros: some great technical people to work with
Cons: loyalty to the company is worth nothing.
Recently terminated. So I may be biased.
If you like strict change control and micro managing, this is the place for you.
Also must like to change managers every 6 months - 2 yrs.

On the positives they are getting more comfortable and proficient at using the Agile development methodologies where appropriate.

Moving most systems to VMware virtual environment.
Partnering – more... with SAP on some new HANA SAP modules
Moving toward RAC for Oracle Databases.

May be "standard" now, but they start you with 3 weeks vacation.

ZOG - Zero Operations Growth for several years now, so it is getting more difficult to "do more with less". – less
