    Current Employee - QM Chemist in Eddyville, IA
    Current Employee - QM Chemist in Eddyville, IA

    I have been working at Cargill full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    exposure to large scale manufacturing, food safety, and quality control work in labs. Easy to get along with technicians that run the plant, the engineers aren't as sociable though. Solid experience in chemistry and food and beverage industry. Many jobs available in many business units. Resources to learn about other manufacturing plants in the facility.

    Cons

    Eddyville, IA is in out in the country. Des Moines is the closest city (1 hour away). Not easy to get promoted unless you plan to live your life at work and stay here in the area. Job can get repetative. Pay raises do not really happen. No paid overtime. Shift schedule including nights.

    Former Employee - Intern in Wayzata, MN
    Former Employee - Intern in Wayzata, MN

    I worked at Cargill as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Cargill is very professional in terms of management style and, as a private company, takes a long-term approach in assessing its business strategies and plans. People are very helpful and the culture fosters collaboration and teamwork. The international aspect of the company's operations is a plus.

    Cons

    As with most large enterprises, decision-making can be slow. Also, as few employees leave, opportunities for advancement can be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to share as much information as possible regarding the company's strategy and future direction with employees.
