Pros

Die Firma entwickelt gern Mitarbeiter und stellt gern intern an. Die flexiblen Arbeitszeiten sind toll. Hohe ethische Standards und Sinn für gemeinschaftliches Verantwortungsbewusstsein.

Company likes to develop employees and it likes to hire internally. Flexible work schedule is great. High ethical standards and a sense of shared community responsibility.

Cons

Als privates Unternehmen ist Cargill keine besonders schlanke Firma. Sie hat begonnen, einige Zusatzleistungen zu kürzen. Nichts Dramatisches, aber sie muss darauf achten, dass die tolle Firmenkultur nicht verloren geht, die dazu geführt hat, dass viele hier ihr Leben lang arbeiten. Die IT-Systeme sind einigermaßen veraltet.

Cargill is not a very lean company due to it being a private company. It has started to trim down some benefits. Nothing too bad but it needs to be weary of losing the awesome culture it has garnered leading to many working there for life. IT systems are somewhat old.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eine Rationalisierung der IT-Dienste würde Zeit und Geld sparen.

Work on streamlining IT services to save time and money.

    Pros

    Haute intégrité et valeurs fortes. Les "principes directeurs" de Cargill forment un guide de conduite en matière d'affaires. Beaucoup de compagnies devraient s'en inspirer. Gens formidables.

    High integrity and strong values. Cargill's "guiding principles" describe guide of conduct how to do business. Many companies should emulate. Great people

    Cons

    Trop de bureaucratie, processus trop lourds et longs faisant rater des opportunités. Devenu trop orienté court-terme, par exemple en surévaluant les gains du trimestre suivant même si c'est une société privée. Ceci a conduit la compagnie à trop se focaliser sur les manières faciles de réduire les coûts : geler les investissements et licencier les employés

    Too much bureaucracy, too heavy and long processes making us miss opportunities. Have become too short-term focused e.g. overvaluing next quarter earnings although it is a private company. That made the company focus too much on the easiest way of cost reduction: freeze capex and fire employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduire le kaizen en tant qu'état d'esprit d'amélioration continue, réduire la bureaucratie pour accélérer les choses et rendre le gros navire plus manœuvrable. Rester concentré sur la croissance à long terme.

    introduce kaizen as state of mind for continuous improvement, reduce bureaucracy to increase speed and make the big boat more manoeuvrable, keep focus on long term growth.

    Good company; outsources functions not in core competency

    Pros

    Stable, global, diversified company.

    Cons

    They outsourced the entire IT Infrastructure organization from a technical perspective, leaving only a retained org of management. They have a tendency to outsource functions that are not in their "core competency" of trading, ag, etc.
