Employee (Former Employee) – Carthage, MO – November 8, 2018
You work an average 7 days a week for a minimum of 2 months before receiving a day off. Hardest part of the job is not being able to spend time with family due to working 7 days a week. Swing shifts are mandatory and that takes away more time. Office personnel does not listen to anyone about over scheduling.
PC Systems Specialist/ IT Analyst (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – November 9, 2018
I enjoy my colleagues, but the constant restructuring has left the culture in constant turmoil. The uncertainty of job safety hinders the ability to excel, and I often feel overlooked even though I bring more to the table than many of my colleagues. It seems to be more about "who you know" rather than "what you can do" here. Oftentimes company fails to promote from within and develop current employees' skills and abilities in favor of contracting out and hiring externally at a lower rate of pay.
Scale Automation Business Analyst II (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – November 6, 2018
There is absolutely no loyalty to their employees you are viewed as a cost to the company instead of an asset! Might be a good place to work if you are looking for some work experience right out of college. If you looking for a long term position (more than 5 years) this will not be the place that you will want to work.
Constant threat of RIFs about every 3 to 5 years to drive down cost.
Extraction Operator/Vacation Relief Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fremont, NE – October 30, 2018
I worked for roughly 3 years at the Fremont ADM location and if you can ignore the shift swings it is a solid place to make a large amount of money with little wear on the body. You have to work 8 a.m to 4 p.m for 1 week. then you work 12 am to 8 am for 1 week then 4 pm to 12 am 1 week then you get 5 days off. it sounds harsh but you get paid a good amount and it has some of the best managers I've ever worked for. Would recommend highly as you can easily become a supervisor with enough time and make a life out of this job.
Relaxed management who are understanding. Great pay, Great benefits, Easy to learn job with high skill ceiling
Hours may cause stress due to changes, Sometimes work can be stressful or dirty, If someone calls in you often have to work 12 hours with no notice
Maintenance A (Former Employee) – Enderlin, ND – October 21, 2018
look at the pay scale average for this company , that should cause you pause. The company safety slogan is zero is possible, more accurate would be zero is probable, as anything that might happen to an employee at the workplace will be blamed on the effected employee 100% of the time regardless of any circumstance. Management has zero accountability , I worked there for 23 years before I finally got fed up , it was not hard to find another job that could beat what they offered. There are many good hard working employees who work there mainly on the hourly side they deserve better. On the salary side this is where the fat needs to be cut, most make very little or no contribution during any given work day. ADM is a 10 billion dollar per year company. After three consecutive years of record profits ADM rewarded its employees with a $300 reward , that was the equivalent to about 1 cent for each hour worked worked for the hourly employees during the three years of record profits. Do your self a favor and keep looking you can do better.
very few they do offer a pension it is not much but at least one is offered.
Commodity Merchandising Intern (Former Employee) – Ledbetter, KY – October 15, 2018
The role was great. HR made sure we had the resources we needed to be successful. Get opportunities to travel and visit other branches. Don't really get a say in where your location will be in the future.
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – October 10, 2018
Leadership in previous role was a micro manager. Did not communicate down to provide key business updates. Open communication and ideas were not appreciated but instead viewed as combative.
Great Company with an amazing future., CEO is in the drivers seat, CEO connects with all divisions and employees, Mission of the company is clear
Current manager is out of touch with the needs of the team, Under communicates and micromanages, Holds information close to the vest leaving a cloud of anxiety and fear to employees, Is not consistant in ways of managing individual leaders, Any differing opinion will leave you on a target list
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – October 8, 2018
This company did a good job of training most personnel. Unfortunately when I worked there, the training program was lacking. There wasn't enough structure in that respect, but overall it was an ok environment to work in.
Technician I (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – October 8, 2018
. We sit a toolbox safety meeting. I then proceed to assemble filtration products until 4:30 pm. workplace is very laid back and people get along well together. i enjoy most aspects of my job, but i feel it is time for a change to better myself.
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – October 3, 2018
Not a good place to work if you have any children or commitments outside of work. Any position not salaried will require a lot of overtime with little to no regard to your obligations outside of work. Guaranteed to work weekends and holidays. Poor management and not a good culture all around to work.
Energy Engineer (Former Employee) – Clinton, IA – October 1, 2018
The management at ADM is concerned with one thing and one thing only: Wall Street. Maybe that is as it should be, but it makes for a horrid working environment. They also talk a big game on safety, but as I personally found out, when it comes right down to it, it's all just talk.
Poor management, lax safety, zero opportunity to advance.
Office Worker (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – September 28, 2018
I work on the trade floor. There is a lot of things going on around you. This is a fast paced environment and a great learning experience. I have worked in several areas within the company and feel that it is a great company to work for.
