    Pros

    A multinational agri-business company with strong benefits and really tries to cultivate a team that stays together a long time. Very strong focus on employee safety and overall well being.

    Cons

    Very unorganized and communication seems to be a universal problem throughout the company. Management promotes openness and honesty but fails to deliver on these themselves. Overall feels like a company stuck in it's old ways.

    Advice to Management

    Act upon the openness that you promote. Communication within teams, between teams, and from employees to managers and vice versa needs serious improvement.

    Pros

    You will get a LOT of experience in your field, and often inter-disciplinary experience. You will work with incredibly smart and diverse people who are eager to share their knowledge. Entry level employees are often exposed to material beyond their experience level with helps them to grow faster in their careers. Global company with many opportunities to travel and learn about other cultures. Products and services are very interesting to learn about and the company wants all employees, regardless of their function, to be familiar with their business. Salaries tend to be higher.

    Cons

    At this company you often have to do "more with less" .A lot of long hours. There are zero flexible work arrangements and you are expected to be in your chair at all times. Leaving on time means that you are leaving early. At this company you often have to do "more with less" . Not many opportunities for growth unless you are willing to relocate, often internationally.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more. Stop with the red tape. Just because you did something for a long time isn't reason enough to keep doing it. Get up to date with flexible work arrangements and formal development opportunities.

    Pros

    Good work / life balance, global company with lots of international contacts.

    Cons

    Too decentralized to make anything happen. Everyone claims ownership when there is controversial topic, no one can make a decision.

    Advice to Management

    More hierarchy would expedite decision making process.

  10. What used to be a fun and entrepreneurial place to work has now become bureaucratic, inefficient and overly political

    Pros

    - Competitive compensation although favoritism is rampant leading to wide variations in comp - International opportunities are substantial, and it is a diverse group of people

    Cons

    - Little collaboration among employees as if everyone is insecure about losing their jobs tomorrow - The corporate group at HQ is a toothless, powerless group, without much in support from Senior Management - the argument given is that the corporate staff has to practice influence without authority. What a sham - when business unit folks openly ignore phone calls and emails from the HQ with, its not a great position to be at HQ - What used to be a fun and entrepreneurial place to work has now become bureaucratic and overly political

    Advice to Management

    Build a strong fair global HR organization that is fair to its people no matter which country they belong to. Get a real strategy - employees are confused what the strategy is, because there is none.
