An irritated employee in an anonymous interview bemoaned on the ills of the company, he said" Management is horrible and will do anything to justify their job, all they care about is production. The culture turned to garbage when they think they can track a bunch of bs with a marker. They don't care about their employees at all and no matter what you do is never enough for them.
Ex-funcionário - Programador De Produção says"Uma má gestão de pessoas."
says"Pouca perspectiva de crescimento: por falta de um plano de sucessão e de um plano de desenvolvimento, os funcionários ficam estagnados. Aliado a esse problema, o baixo nível de cobrança permite que muitas pessoas fiquem acomodadas em suas funções diárias. Não há uma cultura sólida de feedback frequente, limitando-se às revisões de metas. Avaliação de metas e PPR: a diferença de premiação para funcionários que não batem as metas e os que as excedem é muito baixa, também incentivando a acomodação de muitos colaboradores."
Estagiário says"Remuneração muito aquem do mercado, no ultimo meses passou por uma demissão em massa que ocasionou pessimo ambiente organizacional alem de ter reduzido quase por completo setores imprescindiveis como qualidade, segurança, meio ambiente, projetos. Refeitorio horrivel, auxilio alimentação ridiculo e agora ainda por cima retiraram o onibus fretado (a empresa fica a 40 km do centro e nao circula onibus municipal nesta area). politicas de compliance são piada. ambiente misógino, e preconceituoso. Não vi nenhum estagiário ser efetivado no último ano. Jovens aprendizes não são contratados a mais de 5 anos"
says"Falta de meritocracia; Corporativismo dos gerentes em favorecer amigos; Excesso de gerentes em algumas áreas; Avaliação de metas feita apenas pelo gerente direto abrindo espaço para favorecimentos ou desmerecimentos indevidos; Muitos contratados encostados com altos salários e pouca função; Baixos salários em comparação com outros setores; PLR de menos de um salário (apesar da propaganda do RH em dizer que geralmente é maior que 2 salários); RH parcial que expõe funcionários aos gerentes; reajuste anuais de quase metade da inflação do ano"
Analista Fiscal says"pessima gestao; nao tem sistema eficiente; nao possui plano de carreira; gestores incompetentes e ultrapassados, falta de planejamento em tudo, rotina de trabalho extressante e com poucos resultados positivos, RH nao serve pra nada, desvio de funçoes na maioria dos setores, falta oportunidades de crescimento, PPR sempre abaixo das expectativas, má gestao de custos da empresa (excesso de multas, autuações, negocios errados)."
Fiscal says"Nao avaliação de gestores por parte dos funcionarios, sendo sigiloso, acredito que ajudaria muito avaliação do nivel de gestao da empresa por parte de relacionamento com funcionarios. Nao basta apenas ser uma boa empresa para se trab e preciso que sua gestão seja sempre liderada por pessoas com o mesmo objetivo da empresa, e primordial com qualidade total em gestao em de pessoas. Assim o respeito sempre sera recipocro."
Auxiliar Administrativo says"Empresa não presta solidariedade para com funcionários que adoecem e precisam ser afastado de suas atividades no trabalho. Passei por uma cirurgia e acabei descobrindo que sofria de uma doença rara, a mesma se agravou devido a cirurgia. Já tem quase um ano de meu afastamento e até o momento nunca recebi sequer uma ligação da empresa para querer saber se eu estou viva ou morta. Isso é muito desmotivador, pois sempre dei tudo que podia pelo meu trabalho, are mesmo ficar 1 mês sem ver meus filhos que ficavam cerca de 75 km longe de mim, pois eu ficava no alojamento da empresa. Trabalhava o tanto que fosse necessário para poder contribuir de alguma forma na empresa. E hoje nem se lembram que eu existi ali um dia."
Analista Contábil Júnior says"A forme de gestão de seus gerentes de regionais. onde o pensamento arcaico e sem motivaçãos aos demais colaboradores. onde somente tem as ambições e percas da empresa de seus colaboradores."
Operador says"o tiquete é pouco demais, deveria ser melhor"
Analista Fiscal Júnior says"Falta de reconhecimento do gestor, salario baixo."
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) says"ADM is a male dominant company and very old culture. Very unorganized and diversity and inclusion is not something that you can notice.

Lab Technician (Former Employee) says"Do not work here. I worked her for sixth months and quit. I was working 6-7 days a week, there was constant bickering and blame game. The men there were usually sleazy and i walked in on one of them in a compromising position with a lab tech. drama, gossip, grossovertimeeverything else"
Deckhand (Current Employee) says"One employee thinks he runs the place and bullies management and other employees. Don't bother to go to HR because they do nothing. To call people "crack head and stupid" by an operator is just what they let some people get away with. They force you to work over time, work around the crane in lightning storms and 45 mph winds. They won't promote you unless you kiss butt or bully management. DO NOT APPLY!!!!"
Superintendent (Current Employee) says"Don’t apply horrible place to work management has no clue what there doing not sure how they tie there boots Maintenance supervisor is trash Has to google how to spell his name"
Packing and Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) says"The most stressful company on all United States , the more complicated company, the number one company try people like idiots ,that most of equipment is to oldies never work right"
Production Operator (Former Employee) says"The supervisor who is friends with an operator who has been there for while makes sure he does the least amount of work possible. Making other operators work much harder.There are noneOverloaded with work, No help from others, Supervisor can’t set friendship aside to better distribute workload."
Loading Operator (Former Employee) says"If you believe in working extremely hard for your money, this job is for you. ,As a loading operator you are in charge of loading wheat trucks, filling up 25 Kg bags of wheat and maintaining the plant as neat as possible."
Operator (Former Employee) says"It was a terrible job, mostly Hispanic people that could not really speak English. The supervisors and foreman treated them like second class citizens. Not even citizens."
United States (Current Employee) says"This Has to be THE WORST JOB I have Ever Had. at the most Dinosaur Facility in ADM History . With the Worst Management I have ever Seen. Lost 9 people just on my Shift in the first 2 months. Everyone I talk to HATES to work there. They lie about your Hours, and then your told to just COMPLY. Dirty Environment. With deplorable conditions. Especially in the vitamin room on the 3rd floor and the cutting in floor. Shift leads are just puppets . Everyone is ready to quit, All the time."
QA (Former Employee) says"This place is trash! Working there you work for peanuts.... Management sucks and they overhire then fire people.WHAT MORE CAN I SAY?........................................THE PLACE IS NOT FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO ADVANCE IN LIFE!none!The company is a horrendous company to work for"
Production Worker (Current Employee) says"Good paying company if all you want to do is work every day of your life. Management gets bonuses and weekends off while everyone else works 13 days on 1 day off. *mandatory* Dont listen in the interview that its volunteer based. The Human Resources department doesnt exist for the worker here either. Overall, good paying job and pension but you will have zero life outside of work.Good payZero work life balance"
Laborer Byproducts (Former Employee) says"I worked for ADM as Laborer in Byproducts and it was nothing but downhill. Working there for long shifts your basically living in there and it pulls you away from spending time with your family, They give you points for having emergency problems outside of work, you have to basically die for them to somewhat care a little there cause they don’t care about there coworkers at all, The management sucks, and have too many supervisors thinking there bosses and doesn’t know their roles. Now There were some cool coworkers, but the older ones were the worst cause all they do is whine and hate change! The only good thing they have are benefits and good pay, other then that it’s not somewhere you dont want to further your career withBenefits and PayShort breaks, long shifts"
Operator (Current Employee) says"No life all the company care about is production. A lot of overtime. In the supervisor will try write you up just to make themselves look good. Only good thing about the job is pay that's it.JobHours"
Laborer/Operator (Former Employee) says"During my time there I worked in the 'mill', shift supervisors were vindictive and overly concerned with their 'numbers'; quit when it became clear there would never be any real future there as far as getting a decent 'bid', also I understand that at this time(2-28-19) there are contractors cleaning out one of the crude oil tanks, during their breaks they like to smoke pot, which might be considered a real safety hazard, glad I quitat the time, better than nothingUnless you are a 'company' employee, you are just nothing to them"
Material Handler (Former Employee) says"Don’t do it!!!!!! Please stay away. Low pay. Farmers are were cool. But management no!! Starting pay 10 an hour. Really??? You are nothing to them. Trust me stay away!!!"
Instrument Technician (Former Employee) says"Be aware of the low self esteem folks ( blue hats or ADM employees) as they will tell lies on others as they have very limited knowledge. Management is even worse as I would classify their knowledge level equivalent to that of a poultry processing plant reject. After all this facility is a food manufacturing plant. If you want employment whereas you get treated like an idiot everyday, this is the place for you... The person writing this review is 50 years old with over 25 years industrial and management experience. By the way, I was just recently hired into management by one of their competitors for a lot more money! Good Luck Lori and Tara...In conclusion the folks at ADM need to understand there is absolutely ADM has that I need!absolutely noneabsolutley everthing"
Maintenance A (Former Employee) says"look at the pay scale average for this company , that should cause you pause. The company safety slogan is zero is possible, more accurate would be zero is probable, as anything that might happen to an employee at the workplace will be blamed on the effected employee 100% of the time regardless of any circumstance. Management has zero accountability , I worked there for 23 years before I finally got fed up , it was not hard to find another job that could beat what they offered. There are many good hard working employees who work there mainly on the hourly side they deserve better. On the salary side this is where the fat needs to be cut, most make very little or no contribution during any given work day. ADM is a 10 billion dollar per year company. After three consecutive years of record profits ADM rewarded its employees with a $300 reward , that was the equivalent to about 1 cent for each hour worked worked for the hourly employees during the three years of record profits. Do your self a favor and keep looking you can do better.very few they do offer a pension it is not much but at least one is offered.Management, low pay poor benefit package"
Talent Acquisition Specialist (Former Employee) says"The best thing that ever happened to me was getting laid off from this company. It is the most political, cut-throat company that I have ever worked for. My Manager barely said 100 words to me in 2 1/2 years and was not even in my location. Worst manager I have ever had. I would recommend that you not work there.not many that I can think - glad I had a jobbut that is about it - on site cafeteria?Management, Hours, no recognition for a good job."
Loader 1/Step-up Supervisor (Current Employee) says"I hated working therewith a passion. hours long rotating shifts. asshats for management only good think was they paid half way decent, and had good benefits"
