Cargill: women get run over by the male promotion chain

I have been working at Cargill full-time (more than 5 years)

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.

    I worked at Cargill full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation was great and there were tons of opportunities globally with this company. I received a raise within six months of working there.

    Cons

    The hours were extensive. I went three weeks without an off day. And this was not during a special time or anything. We were just understaffed. Many of the managers did not seem to have a personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been a long time since I worked at Cargill. I trust that improvements have been made.
