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

    Pros

    Large, diversified global company so if you can get a project or program implemented across a significant part of the behemoth you can probably do it any where in the world. "Minnesota Nice" culture that values maintaining personal brands and relationships--outwardly friendly but watch how you express the espoused corporate value of "candor." Great business to be a trader or senior management team member on a direct drive bonus scheme.

    Cons

    Poor IT systems, poor work processes, and more value on protecting personal "brands" and establishing mutually protective relationships than getting results. The HR function is, ironically, the worst function at developing talent--classic "cobbler's children" scenario.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new head of HR needs to clean house among the current HR senior leadership team and their direct reports. More emphasis on protecting fiefdoms than working as a global leadership team.

    I worked at Cargill full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    at vernon everyone had each others back

    Cons

    at fullerton everyone was out to stab you in the back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you have a very bad "tattletale" environment at your fullerton D S O N A plant. I have never worked at a plant where everyone is in fear of loseing their job than at fullerton as comming over from vernon where my experience was the exact opposit.
