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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Blair, NE

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

    Pros

    great job security
    large facility, many different roles possible without moving locations
    safety culture
    friendly people, good community

    Cons

    work can be repetitive, boring
    too much emphasis on small changes, quick dollar reduction. managers don't think long term and/or big picture
    wouldn't recommend moving to Blair. Although Cargill employees are kind and welcoming, the town is NOT AT ALL. If you didn't grow up around there, you are treated terribly by locals
    advancement seems to be slow and hard to come by

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    challenge your best employees more in their work. some very smart people work here and are under-utilized

    It was a great opportunity, wish I had moved around more internally before they started looking to sell the biz unit

    Pros

    Focus on development and controls

    Lack of focus on improving efficiency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate units with high turn over and investigate causes/invest in exit interviews to identify why talent is exiting
