    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Conagra Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Summer hours were nice and depending on you manager the work from home policies were great

    Cons

    1. DO NOT JOIN ConAgra if your goal is to advance in your career at this company. Promotions are very rare (ConAgra would rather hire externally than promote from within). Even after getting good performance reviews its very difficult to work your way up. Supposedly when joining there is a strict 2 year rule before you can even apply to rotate to a knew position. 2. The systems used are terrible. From the daily data issues to the amount of time it takes just to get the data you need to do your job. 3. Lack of direction. You would think a company of this size would have an organized Finance department. It's pretty confusing setup and there are constant changes and layoffs. They also try to paint pictures of ideas they are going roll out at all the quarterly finance meetings that almost always either do not happen in the way they say they will, or do not happen at all 4. Not as big of a con, but there is lack of recognition. By lack of recognition I mean basically zero unless someone simply tells you great work. Sure you can plan your own happy hours or team events, but don't expect CAG to cover a penny of them.

    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement. Benefits are better than most other companies offer.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is challenging to have your point of view understood by leadership but I see it as opportunity to teach them the correct way of leadership transformation.
