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

    Pros

    Large company with opportunities for advancement and relatively low-cost health insurance.
    Diverse employees from different cultures.
    Stable with diverse portfolio of industries which help with flucuations in the market.

    Cons

    Large company and clear vision not usually apparent. Can get lost in it's enormity. Not the best paying large company in Mpls/St. Paul and surrounding area. Poor middle managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the Indians and choose your Chiefs more wisely.
