Overall Ingredion needs better management
QA Analyst (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAApril 5, 2018
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.

Great place to work!
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 5, 2018

Pros
longetivity
Cons
Could have been better in putting to use the strong points of employees.

Good place to work for the flexible
Legal Assistant- Trademarks (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJDecember 8, 2017
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.
Pros
Good people, good science, good resources
Cons
Workplace in flux

You will do better working for a subcontractor
Employee (Former Employee) –  Stockton, CANovember 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".

No job security
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 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.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Total lack of leadership. Corporate changes are extremely unorganized causing employee stress.
