    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have got to start communicating to your team. Don't shy away from the negative feedback. Listen and respond accordingly. Stop making advancement a buddy system. Look at the qualifications. Refocus your direction to the reason you're in business...the customer.

    Pros

    The only reason to work at Cargill would be stability. If you want a stable job with no potential for things to be done they way that they should be in IT, Cargill is a good place for you.

    Cons

    The middle management is only interested in padding their PMPs and will turn on their subordinates in a heartbeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house on your middle managers, especially in GIHS.
