    Pros

    It is a great company to work for with lots of opportunity for growth, as long as you're willing to move around. It is a global company that is not going anywhere and has a global presence. Small company feel within the Ag Services division.

    Cons

    Operations management positions tend to work long hours and 6-7 days a week during busy times (harvest or seed treating). This can be taxing, but is part of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare to work long hours during harvest season.

    Pros

    Training program that allows access to many different business units, ability to climb the ladder if willing to relocate, good pay and benefits, safety conscious company.

    Cons

    Depending on location, can work 12hr days/7 days a week. Management employees can be overworked without additional compensation. Upper management can be unorganized and have an unclear vision at times.

    Advice to Management

    Post all jobs available internally, allow employees to explore opportunities outside their given roles.Communication between mentor group and employees lags and often leaves an uncertainty to your future.
