    I have been working at Cargill Canada (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cargill cares about its employees and its communities. The head office in Winnipeg is a very comfortable place to work and they have a number of employee perks. Including an onsite fitness facility and an easy to get to downtown location. The people are friendly and welcoming to new employees. Flex time is good too.

    Cons

    Too many organizational changes which sometimes affect engagement and even employment. Cargill agrees that they are not the highest when it comes to compensation, and it can sometimes be difficult to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of good ideas floating around with the employees, so don't under estimate that when working with outside contractors or experts.
