    I worked at ADM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company, large range of employee welfare benefits, almost guaranteed an annual pay rise and Christmas party

    Cons

    Inconvenient and unfit for purpose office in an industrial setting. Disconnection with management who never appreciate or realise the troubles experienced. Super over-complicated inter-company structure leading to hours and hours spent resolving internal reporting differences. Despite size, opportunities to move up are surprisingly rare (given the size of the company) and those moving up the ranks are often overlooked for the 'lifers' that have been in ADM forever.

    Advice to Management

    More appreciation of the strain placed on management accountants when they are reporting. Most of the strain originating from the lack of understanding from higher management and a totally inept financial reporting system particularly surrounding intercompany. There was a very depressed attitude in the office and I am very glad to be out of it despite it meaning that I am no longer in a billion dollar company.

    Pros

    Great place to work, colleagues all easy to work with and approach if have a problem. I had a bereavement during my time there and was looked after very well regarding support to get through it personally and regarding my work.

    Cons

    I had no issues, with the company, some of the work was time consuming but mostly due to compliance issues or the usual IT hiccups.

    Good people to work with in lower ranks

    Seems the ivory tower in Chicago has lost touch with reality by cutting best and most senior employees and its showing in their smaller locations
