I worked at Cargill full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

People are good to work with and the company seems to care if the employees are engaged or not. I enjoyed working at Cargill.

Cons

Cargill might start you off with a pretty good salary - but they only increase your salary every three years at best. And there are very few bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Our culture is driven by values and principles which foster a high level of trust to its customers. The focus on doing the right things even if it means telling a customer bad news is refreshing. There is no tolerance for bad behaviors. The discipline applied to growing responsibly and protecting the safety of its employees are why the company has grown continuously.

    Cons

    Because there is so much concern for managing risk, it sometimes seem slow to adopt new technologies. There have been some concerns about secure work within the past 2 years, but the leaning down was necessary. There were some big projects that took a lot of strain on the bottom line, but the company learned and made changes when they were needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to values.

    Pros

    Great resources and opportunties if you are willing to network and drive your own development.

    Cons

    the organization is slow to change. Can be a really tough culture to break into for mid-career hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    walk the walk. The organization has a habit of committing to a lot of initiatives and then changing direction before completion.
