I have been working at Cargill full-time for more than a year

Pros

I really like my work group, they're genuine people and are motivated to help each other. It's not every man for himself. There is opportunity here to move around and try different things if you play your cards right.

Cons

The culture here is very focused on politics. To get hired, it really helps to know someone or to have some affiliation to Iowa State. Learn your corporate buzz words and you will advance quickly. Work/Life balance is very much up to the individual to enforce.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask the engineers before making big directional changes on whether or not it's going to be feasible to deliver a concept on budget and on time. We have been changing direction frequently.

    I have been working at Cargill full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Culture is base on excellent values & principles, private company which still values its family heritage, best people I've ever met and looks at business for the long term win, not short term gains.

    Cons

    Location isn't close to where I grew up, otherwise, I have had few complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand firm in continuing to lead with values first! Its what I have been most attracted to for 15 yrs.

    Former Employee - IT Professional in Hopkins, MN

    I worked at Cargill full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers, intriguing work, reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    Slightly behind the times, pay could be more competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your employees (socials, team outings, etc). This tends to go a long way with younger professionals who might be on the fence (stay or leave) thanks to a predominantly older/experienced workforce and slightly non-progressive culture.
