Process Operator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 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.
Never layed off, paid well and lots of overtime. Benefits were good.
Its not a good place to work if a person suffers from allergies. A lot of dust and mold.
Accounts payable (Former Employee) – Tulsa – March 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
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.

Sr Accountant - Consultant (Current Employee) – Bedford Park, IL – January 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.
Control Room Operator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 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.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 5, 2018
I was there 37 years at the Indianapolis plant. Most employees were long time, and all were treated fairly as far as I could see. It is a growing company focused on ensuring the quality of its products.
Could have been better in putting to use the strong points of employees.
The folks who work at Ingredion, and the company philosophy, is great. The pace was fast and competitive, but you could collaborate (and were encouraged to collaborate) with peers. Science and rigor were high-quality. The only real problem is that the work keeps shifting from facility to facility, so you had to be prepared to move or move on.
Employee (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – November 28, 2017
It's all about the bottom line. There is a theme of outsourcing with no value in employees that have been there 10, 20 even 30 years. The corporate management pushes being #1 in the industry but address benefits with "industry standard".
Logistics Planner (Current Employee) – Westchester, IL – November 8, 2017
Decent employer, no work/life balance. I would not recommended this employer to any family or friends. Salary is decent, however employees are expected to provide afterhours support without compensation.
Zero work/life balance; expected to be on call 24/7 without overtime compensation
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 25, 2017
Their corporate office is in the process of restructuring the whole organization so job security is non-existent. Their own employees are having to reapply for their own jobs just to even be considered in the restructuring process.
Total lack of leadership. Corporate changes are extremely unorganized causing employee stress.
