Pros

Great people, varied workload and clients. Had the autonomy to do a lot and therefore gain a lot of experience

Cons

Lack of structure in regards to who to report to and who is responsible for what. When something went wrong, blame tended to be shuffled around and the problem usually ended up not getting resolved. Very reactive firm when they should have been proactive.

    Pros

    Good young cadre of people; access to sharp young folks from colleges of ag, but they don't ever last long.

    Cons

    Hapless leadership. Senior leaders who, at part of their nature, divide and tear everyone down, yet implore for folks to get behind them. Usual agency stuff. C-suite needs turned over. Organization is somehow bigger yet worse than ever in its history. Current leadership can lay claim to this. And no, you aren't the only people in the organization working hard, contrary to your popular belief. This mindset is childish and demoralizing to everyone who puts their heart into the work.

    Advice to Management

    Go away. Good people underneath you. Why you choose to ruin them is beyond comprehension.

    Pros

    Great people and great experience in the ag market.

    Cons

    Unstable; there has been a history of downsizing. Furthermore, upward mobility is limited. Once you were pigeon-holed in a team, it was hard to gain experience elsewhere. Additionally, the compensation was not on par with similar firms.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to work on various accounts and be a part of many teams throughout their time with the firm.
