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

Pros

Good work life balance. Salt of the earth people. Supportive and ethical culture where people are valued, and folks want to do the right thing. Opportunity for new challenges and to take your career in different directions.

Cons

Consensus culture and a myriad of policies can make for slow decision making. Tendency over the years to cut costs and run more and more lean, means people can become overloaded and this can impact performance and engagement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be bold in establishing a future vision for growth.

    Pros

    Work life balance can be achieved. Flexible work arrangements permit work from home which is great.

    Cons

    Salary does not align with current market rates; even with candid feedback about this, it makes little difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales people that directly help their business unit earn more are directly compensated based on this performance yet when "IT" groups enable a business unit to be more profitable, where is the direct correlation in the compensation plan? I have not seen it.

  2. Cargill: women get run over by the male promotion chain

    Pros

    Better job security than most.

    Cons

    The male (and particularly white male) promotion train runs strong. Just look at the announcements. Apparently nourishing the world is something only men know how to do. They talk about wanting to thrive as a business and in the community. You can't thrive at the expense of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing more to say, they aren't paying attention.
