In a blink, Omaha and Nebraska's Fortune 1000 list isn't what it used to be
In 2015, ConAgra Foods announced it would move its headquarters to Chicago. That was one Fortune 500 headquarters gone.
That same year, outdoor retailer Cabela’s went through a downturn in sales before a New York hedge fund bought into the company. By 2017, Cabela’s would sell to Bass Pro Shops and see its Sidney headquarters broken up.
Lower in the rankings in 2015, West Corp. would fall off the list after its own troubles.
Even Union Pacific has made big job cuts in recent years as the railroad pushes for efficiency.
Here’s a look back at the list circa 2015 and as of 2019. (Employee numbers are drawn from company reports by Fortune.)
