    Pros

    friendly co-workers, small town environment (but close to the city) with great facilities - they spent a bundle and it shows! Cargill definitely believes in its products, believes in its people and generally makes you believe as an employee that your input is valued and you are valuable to the company.

    Cons

    Depending on your role in the company, geographic location can become a career limiter. With international HQ based just outside of Minneapolis, if you want to advance in the company, be prepared to move there.
    Also with being such a huge company (when I was there they were the largest privately held company in the world), sometimes a unilateral decision would be made at HQ that just didn't make sense to the field offices. But as long as the business unit is making money, the guys at the top didn't mess with it too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In general, I saw top management making good decisions and hopefully they still are. But be aware that something that makes sense in a global economy in China may not make as much sense in little Blair, NE.
