      Negative Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at Conagra Brands full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Really great people who are down to earth, little office politics, generally good work/life balance, food that tastes better than you might expect

      Cons

      1) Inconsistent in promotion practices 2) Absurd focus on cost-cutting when Wall Street has indicated that they are indifferent to it (CAG has one of the lowest SG&A rates within CPG industry) 3) Hypocrisy about high ethical standards when everyone knows that a brand president had an affair with HR rep who kept getting promoted. Also they rescinded multiple ABM offers during the summer (when offers had been extended...

      Advice to Management

      1) Actually make sure that you are promoting the right people. 2) Develop and reward good people managers. These people are critical. 3) Change your compensation structure. If you want to pay low salaries, then you need higher bonuses. 4) Actually clean house and take action on the known ethical violations. Keeping them there just makes people distrust ethical commitment. 5) Push decision making down....

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Conagra Brands full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Interactions with marketing were positive, clearly an HR and senior leadership problem

      Cons

      My friend and 2-3 others who were supposed to start during the same month had their offers rescinded based on a typo on their applications. General consensus is that ConAgra over hired and then needed to take offers back, but did so in a super shady way!

      I worked at Conagra Brands full-time

      Pros

      Summer Hours Casual Dress code Compensation Opportunity for Advancement

      Cons

      Constant restructuring Work-Life Balance Lack of direction- I still don't think this company has any clue of where it's going. Low Morale

      Advice to Management

      It's unfortunate that the attitudes of some senior leadership can really impact and create a hostile work environment. These negative dynamics are not rectified fast enough creating churn. So many great employees pass through these doors due to organization disarray and negative leaders. Most of the mid-level employees are really awesome people but if you're not a favorite of certain leaders (despite reasons out of your...

      Pros

      Lots of accountability and freedom to act autonomously. New ideas and strategies are taken seriously and you'll have a lot of runway to make serious impact and be recognized for it.

      Cons

      Ridiculous focus on daily sales volume; limited touches executing the fun parts of marketing. Job title tends to act down a level...I still do a lot of ABM work
