Accountant (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – March 15, 2018
I've worked for Archer Daniels Midland for over a decade. I've held a few different jobs with the company. During this time, I've worked with many great people. However, I've also see the decline in employee morale over the years due to poor choices/communication from upper management. In just a five year span, the company has undergone two major layoffs. Following the layoffs, filling positions, including voluntarily vacated positions were slow to be approved. This resulted in high stress, skeletal groups. Furthermore, management continued to increase demands and workload. Even when many cuts in costs seemed somewhat unnecessary, the company would spend money in other areas that didn't entirely make sense given the cost cutting environment. All the while, employee morale has suffered and not much has been done to change this.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Effingham, IL – March 15, 2018
I really enjoyed the work, and working hard everyday at ADm. Everyday I learned something new to progress within the company. It was hard work but they paid you for your work and their benefit package is second to none.
Maintenance / Reliability Engineer (Current Employee) – Columbus, NE – March 11, 2018
The offices were very basic and spread apart. There were generally only 10 people or less working in a particular building. This was due to the fact that ADM is a very large facility and there are not that many people working in each area. The process is very interesting. Engineers work on a rotating shift for the first year (night, weekends, and holidays)

Milling Operator 1 (Former Employee) – Clinton, IA – March 1, 2018
A lot of equipment to watch and maintain,That in corn processing doing something a certain way was different each day, Management back us 100% on safety, The workplace culture was different as depending on which shift and group of people you worked with, The hardest part was if more than one thing went wrong you could not be there to stop all the glitches which could lead to a big mess, At the end of the day when things ran smooth or you took pride in correcting any upsets in the process before becoming a major problem.
Safety culture, big on safety
To many double standards, not the same for everyone.
