    I worked at Cargill full-time (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 Management

    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.
