    Brand Management Intern

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company, enjoyed the down to earth normal people. Meaning full projects, very lean so really get to take control and handle the projects and make recommendations

    Cons

    very business management focused, for marketing don't really get to do marketing things. Each team is very different

    I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work enviroment provides ample opportunities for growth within the company.
    Lots of opportunity to explore many diffferent aspects of food manufacturing

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Benifits are not that great. Through "partnerships" the struggle to maintain confidence that the company pays it forward to the production facilities that have put in the grunt work to show growth and improvement is next to none.

    Need to "clean house" of the old guard that is in power. They lack vision, integrity and leadership to make the tough decisions for the company's future. They need to bring in competent leaders to right the ship.
