I have been working at Cargill full-time (less than a year)

Pros

As an intern I was in Charge of some pretty sweet project, never did busy work, and I learned a lot about underground room and pillar mining

Cons

Cargill only owns 3 Mines, so as a Mining Engineer there are not too many opportunities to advance as far as I would like

Advice to ManagementAdvice

great job, had a blast working there

    I have been working at Cargill full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cargill has great people and is very relationship oriented.
    If you're interested in international experience, Cargill encourages people to take overseas assignments.
    There is a long history of solid business ethics that leaders hold onto strongly.

    Cons

    As with most companies, there are pockets of very poor leadership in places.
    Cargill has become very focused on reducing costs, often in a non-productive and short sighted manner.
    Although it is a private company, Cargill has begun reacting to short term revenue slumps more like a public company - cutting costs severely as opposed to building for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being short sighted, take the long term view.
    Focus on true talent management, at all levels of the organization, not just the top.

    I have been working at Cargill

    Pros

    Great values that match well with the values I have personnally. Cargill is very respectful of employees personal needs and i have found them to be very accomodating.

    Cons

    Cargill is very conservative and can be bureaucratic. Things sometimes move much slower than they should with more analysis than necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a longer term view. Cargill is very subject to cyclical events that may cause a shorter term view than necessary.
