Pros

Cargill is a global company with an enormous amount of opportunity.

Cons

Agribusiness is not a very attractive industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Cargill point of view is more parochial than other firms. Opening the minds of the employees to the larger world, will unleash Cargill's potential.

    I worked at Cargill

    Pros

    All the people were intelligent and most were excited about the work they were doing. People who came across as less excited about their workload and opportunities had been with the company and in the same position for a long time, and perhaps some degree of burnout had occurred.

    Cons

    The harvest season was extremely busy and required very long hours to keep up with the work. This meant coming in very early in the morning and staying later than a typical day as well. Time off during this time was somewhat nonexistant!! However, it was still a team of people working with you, so I never felt alone on a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team working with me was always honest while being supportive and as helpful as they could be.
