    I have been working at Conagra Brands for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, great co-workers, well known brands

    Cons

    Currently downsizing and outsourcing many positions, so morale is low and future job security is uncertain. Work/life balance is challenging.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time

    Pros

    Great sales organization. Mid level leaders were committed to the growth of their people. It was a pleasure to work there.

    Cons

    Top sales management was top heavy. The president of the sales division insulated himself with people concerned with protecting their $175,000 salaried positions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your mid level and front line sales managers. Many of them have been around the block and know the business at the ground level.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good tools to get new business, supportive management, career guidance

    Cons

    Wall Street dictates the future of you job, our division was doing great and still had a massive restructure dictated by wall street where many hundreds lost their jobs. Also a move to more HR centered culture which changed the feel of the environment

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating people well, eliminate those whose performance is sub par not just based on potential savings from salary being eliminated

    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Strong, well known brands in a relatively stable industry. Excellent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Constant state of paranoia and CYA throughout the company leads to a great deal of time spent trying to "keep your job" instead of excelling at your job. Admin work is overwhelming and mostly internal reporting.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees make, sell and distribute products instead of micromanaging and beating them over the head with internal reports and non-value added work.

    The Work and Life Balance is good.

    Quit speculating and give the sales people the tools to get the job done.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Conagra Brands

    Pros

    Management Work Life Fair Pay Company Car Work from Home Exciting Ability to develop your business No micromanagement

    Cons

    Ease of Systems (though greatly improving) Fairness to all accounts/customers Hard to move up without relocating Sometimes transparency to what's expected is absent

    Advice to Management

    My manager is the best I have ever had. Completely respectful, he has a hands-off approach which makes me work harder. Advice to upper management would be that a lot of talent is lost from forcing people to relocate in order to be considered for positions. The benefit of retained talent and loyalty would far outweigh the cost of well-planned business travel.
