    I worked at Cargill full-time

    Pros

    Awesome management that seriously cares about their effects on the world. It was nice to see this as a young man in the meetings. Got sort of tired of people telling me it was some "evil corporation" when all I saw was honest, hardworking people. Things that happened in the field were taken very seriously as well.
    Interns were treated like kings.

    Cons

    SLOOOWWWWWWW moving on any sort of action. Frustrating.
