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

Pros

Cargill is a great place to work. Great people, great opportunities, global company so if you want to go anywhere in the world, chances are you could stay within the Cargill company. If you are at corporate, it's sort of out in the sticks but they have concergie services for just about anything you would need.

Cons

average pay, depending on what you do you may be required to relocate or accept another position in the location you are in

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have good people working for you, rely on your people to make good decisions

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Very large company with many opportunities if you know the right people.

    Cons

    Little to no investment into IT as the company states it is not their core competency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely more on your staff to help guide your decisions, it appears that 5% of the knowledge base is making 99% of the decisions.
