I have been working at Cargill full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Some of the best benefits (other than vacation time). Pay is well above average for people who have not received a college degree. Relatively low turnover rate.

Cons

Standards of performance vary from person to person and it definately shows on reviews. Managers may "listen" to ideas, but only go with their ideas no matter how bad and inefficient they may be. It's all about safety until safety costs too much money, then they just look the other way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people who do the job every day. Quit trying to make decisions without knowing what each person has to deal with and overcome in their job. Each location is unique and certain standards don't work in every location.

    low base pay, low incentive pay (that changes like the seasons). Little to no career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on R&D, filling the pipeline with new technology and more industry involvement. Increased marketing would be a tremendous asset

    Former Employee - IT Intern in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Cargill as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They subsidized rent for internship, get to live in Minneapolis, Decent compensation

    Cons

    Had to fight HR for fair compensation for internship, No intern activities scheduled by Cargill, The whole internship seemed off the cuff and was poorly planned. There seemed to be no real communication between HR and management. They attract poor talent. We were mislead on multiple occasions and the projects overall seemed incredibly worthless to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp your internship if you hope to attract top talent in the future.
