    I have been working at Cargill full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Training and experience. Great health and retirement benefits

    Cons

    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
