Paid well, hard work
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  IndianapolisAugust 21, 2018
Ingredion is a very challenging job. You can expect to work 12 to 16 hour shifts.The type of work comes with lots of responsibilities. If each individual does his job well and works well with their fellow employees , the job becomes that much easier. If on the other hand a person doesn't perform their job well it can cause a domino effect and lead to bad performances.
Pros
Healthcare, 401k and vacations paid.
Cons
No sickdays, pensions froze and retirement benifits could be better.

Quality Control Microbiologist (Former Employee) –  Bedford Park, ILAugust 21, 2018
The buck is often passed and the little man always takes the fault.
Ingredion offers competitive pay and benefits but you wouldn't know it for all of the unsatisfied employees, many of whom are jumping ship.
Pros
competitive pay, benefits, company events are nice
Cons
management, culture, morale is low everywhere

Nice place to work
Senior Control Room Operator (Current Employee) –  Stockton, CA 95206August 6, 2018
Cool people and a great place to get trained up. The rotation of the shifts was a bit hard on the home life but the pay was worth it. Just too bad they decided to close my plant down.

24 hour process with too much variation in schedule. Too many ups and downs in the process. Management needs professionalism training. Communication between departments needs work.

Great job and coworkers
Process Operator (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 27, 2018
I worked at Ingredion (formally National Starch and Chemical) almost 33 years. It was a very good job and a very interesting job. I would often work 16 hour shifts and never had a complaint. The overtime was plentiful and the money was good. I worked my way up to 6 weeks vacation a year.
Pros
Never layed off, paid well and lots of overtime. Benefits were good.
Cons
Its not a good place to work if a person suffers from allergies. A lot of dust and mold.

Poor Management
Accounts payable (Former Employee) –  TulsaMarch 9, 2018
Management treats employees as bodies in chairs. I never interviewed with the manager just the temp service and was sent the following monday. Training is mediocre at best. Management is trying to put a shared services together but has no clue...maybe in 5 years it will be a okay place to work
Pros
They paid for parking
Cons
No training long hours

Senior Credit Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJFebruary 19, 2018
Day-to-day high level of motivation, efficiency and ability to meet any objective, alone or as part of a team.
I learned that knowledge and documentation is key.
Management very supportive, little supervision allowed to work independently, open door policy.
The culture was open and inviting, friendly, safety oriented
Hardest part was the low authority we were given, had to go through 2-3 other departments for resolution.
Most enjoyable was the relationships I built with internal and external
customers and being recognized for accomplishments.
Pros
Safety week, Family Company Picnic, Corporate Cup Challenge
Cons
late night coverage, non-upgrade of system

Sr Accountant - Consultant (Current Employee) –  Bedford Park, ILJanuary 28, 2018
Stressful knowing that the position was temporary because the entire the department is moving to Tulsa. I need something permanent and I don't understand their management decision's/systems for and logic for providing all long time employees packages to fire and hire all new staff.

Extremely Racist. Hateful environment
Control Room Operator (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 17, 2018
Hateful towards blacks. And other indeginous people . . . You can’t just come to work and do your job. If you don’t befriend and butt kiss and look and act like the current employees. They’ll try their very best. With all ntentions to lie and make sure your through under the bus and fired. Especially if you don’t smile shuck and jive.

A Complete mismanaged and incompetent management driven place. They fully expect subservience. Very much a penny-pincher attitude. Manager will throw you under the Bus every time.
