    I worked at Mosaic Company (Minnesota) full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the CEO cares about the employees. The company is looking like they are on the upswing, so there is optimism and feeling of job security there.

    Cons

    Because the company used to be owned by Cargill, they had the luxuries of their systems and experience. Once separated, Mosaic was like a child who just got their training wheels taken off, shaky. There are many inefficiencies and kinks to work out. The HR department is lagging, IT is trying new systems. The lack of efficiencies/structure is also an opportunity for certain people. The company is conservative and not as adapted to the new millennials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is an energy at Mosaic that everyone needs to be busy. Remember that busy does not necessarily mean productive or that it is contributing to the overall strategic goal. It would also be good to recruit younger professionals/interns to the company, the workforce is starting to age and people in their early/mid 30s are the babies of the corporate headquarters.
