    I have been working at CHS Inc full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company Plenty of Upward movement if you are qualified Multiple divisions and business groups to utilize skilled employees Competitive salary and great overall benefit package

    Cons

    There is a very lopsided manager to subordinate ratio. Starting at the bottom of the food chain as a warehouseman I had to answer to six separate managers and supervisors within just my local cooperative group, that is before even getting to the corporate level management.

    Advice to Management

    Thin the herd a little bit

    Pros

    Company is growing at a very rapid pace compared to the industry There are many career opportunities within the company due to the growth

    Cons

    Compensation is below industry for a Fortune 100 company Not focused on cultivating young talent for the future Too many "supervisors" and "managers" Computer systems are from the stone age, extremely inefficient IT department is a joke, can't fix anything

    Advice to Management

    Focus on promoting and paying the young talented people to get them to stay with the company for years to come.
