What Employees Say
I worked at Tejon Ranch full-time for more than 8 years
Beautiful place to work at times. Some managers are great. If you are motivated there are opportunities for education and on the job training.
Severe weather at times, ever changing politics. Pay is below LA county standards for those that commute from the south. Cronyism and nepotism. Poor performing employees are allowed to perform poorly... while high performs are not adequately compensated or acknowledged.
Advice to Management
Staff is top heavy, lots of manager, directors, VP and not a lot of staff to address the actual work. Embrace a culture of trust and promote employees that perform well to retain good talent. Stop... overspending for poorly implemented technology efforts.
I have been working at Cargill full-time for more than 3 years
Offers plenty of opportunities to pursue lateral movement across other departments and industries Great benefits Pay seems reasonable Culture and values set in writing are ones I strive to meet... everyday in my personal life Job security seems very high Great work/life balance Plenty of vacation days Great opportunities to advance yourself with certifications and classes paid for by Cargill
Certain offices can get fairly political and hierarchical There can be a disconnect with the vision and goals set by each office/department/boss (lack of purpose and goals tend to lead to... underachievement and disengagement)
Advice to Management
I would recommend focusing more on setting your vision and goals and being more deliberate with stating them to your teams. Employees become less engaged when they don't have a vision to help pursue... as a team and especially become disengaged when they don't have a leader they are willing to do it with as well. I would put my attention not on underachieving teams, but the managers of the underachieving teams.
