    I worked at Cargill full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent leadership that are open suggestions from their reports and keep an open door policy. There are many career opportunities that exist through networking within the company. The work-life balance is in the top 10% of all companies and most managers are very flexible about taking time off. I had a very positive experience working here and keep in touch with most of my former colleagues.

    Cons

    The businesses are a little silo-ed, which limits the flow of ideas and best practices. This makes establishing an internal network very important.

    Pros

    This company takes the time to personally grow its employees and offer a wide range of opportunities to fit every employee's interests.

    Cons

    Being such a large company, it moves slowly and is very behind in the technology area and it takes a long time to get decisions made

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on retaining young talent!
