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

    Current Employee - Senior IT Analyst in Hopkins, MN
    Current Employee - Senior IT Analyst in Hopkins, MN

    I have been working at Cargill full-time (more than an 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.
