    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time

    Pros

    Normal 8-5 work hours. Nice office building and campus with gym and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Same people in charge at the middle to senior level after years of poor performance. They spend millions on "smart" people to analyze but then end up making little change.. A great place for Yes Men.

    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Worked with great people.

    Cons

    Since new Senior leadership came aboard, everything became so unknown. Change is good, but so many changes can be detrimental to employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of going backwards try going forwards. For example....why would a company take a huge leap forward with other companies, as far as employee rating system, and go try a discussion system. Then go archaic backwards to a grading system. Just don't get it, when companies are going towards no evals.

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay/benefits and the ability to move laterally in the organization. CAG is trying to be tech-savvy which is a pro (but there are a lot of bottlenecks in successfully achieving/implementing change)

    Cons

    No flexibility to work remotely, very old school in processes, difficult to change behavior in the existing sales team, lacks corporate culture

    Advice to Management

    The most productive way to attract young talent who will stay committed is to provide a more flexible work environment where you are not confined to one desk. This will also build trust amongst the teams. Encourage those new to the organization to have a voice and offer up fresh ideas while you actively listen and hopefully consider. We are dedicated individuals.

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Summer hours gives you Friday afternoons off as long as you work an extra hour every day Monday - Thursday.

    Cons

    Constant employee turnover. Very low morale. Very little flexibility. Management is very unorganized and lacks professionalism with little to no leadership. They do not care about their staff. Often times gossiping and talking poorly about other colleagues. Favouritism / Nepotism with middle management. Outdated corporate culture.
