    Pros

    The size of the company is its biggest asset to an employee. If you are willing to move anywhere to take a promotion there are not many limitations to what you will be able to accomplish here.

    Cons

    At the specific plant I was at it was very difficult at times to get heard from top management. It was a culture where everyone was always on the hot seat and it felt like you could really not trust any of your co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your hiring process. Stop getting bogged down by focusing on pointless qualifications people need to land the job. Find passionate people that are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed and actually improve processes.

    I have been working at Cargill Meat Solutions

    Pros

    Benefits, opportunities are available, great way to really see different businesses and grow as an employee

    Cons

    Centralization, uncertainty in the markets, feel like trying to cover up the fact that there isn't much job security in some of the admin jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advantage of honing skills for younger talent, that is said but not always done.
