Pros

If you are early in your career, you will get great training. If you demonstrate capabilities, there are good advancement opportunities early in a career.

Cons

A very strong gravity to pull everybody to one like mind kills creativity and initiative. The company is quite political. Try as they might, they have never understood customers. If you are a truly outstanding high achieving salesperson, you will never be compensated nor have the opportunities here that you will get elsewhere. Run dont walk if you are that person.

    Pros

    Solid and strong in a tough economic recession. Not going to close up and leave you unemployed.

    Cons

    benefits are average, bonus is very small. Physical, dirty work.

    Pros

    Organization full of hard working people who trust one another to get the job done. Freedom to work from anywhere as long as you do your job well. More than enough professional development opportunities for growth within the company. Female leadership throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Cargill's perspective on the market and on itself is very inward focused; meaning they may call themselves the leader in marketplace but without really comparing the value they bring against their competitors. Although they take good care of employees, most people are stretched very thin expected to do an amount of work that could be three peoples jobs.
