    I have been working at Cargill full-time for 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

    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.
