    Pros

    Great working environment. Easy to work with people between departments. This makes for hassle free solutions to most problems. What a pleasure.

    Cons

    Honestly, none. Every day was a pleasure to show up to work. Great pay and benefits. Great culture. I was sad to go.

    Thank you.

    I worked at CHS Inc full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    8-5 job, great work-life balance, low-key environment, great benefits, pay is about the same as market. Most people who work there are pretty nice. cafeteria at the Inver grove heights location. Family oriented as most people who work there have kids.

    Cons

    Culture of process improvement is non-existent in my division. Most people are ok doing the same thing they have been doing for 20 years. Management often pigeon-hole you into a specific function and is ok leaving you there for the next 20 years. No strategic plan for developing and retaining talent. When you are good or interested at something and you raise your hand, you will get shut down. People have very poor technology skills (Excel, access, etc). No clear path for advancement. This job is perfect if you just want stability and pay, but if you want to grow into a well-rounded and market-compatible professional, go somewhere else.

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, plenty of job opportunity if you are willing to move and not stuck in an area.

    Cons

    Trainee program was lacking in detail, new and unexperienced employees getting paid higher wages than 20+ year employees

    Advice to Management

    Agriculture is a great business to be in but it requires solid, competent workers willing to do the job. Management needs to keep this in mind when hiring staff and trying to keep employees who have been in the business for several years. Farmers do no like constant change in who they work with on a day to day basis. It is hard to keep business and gain new business when upper management and operations show unstability.

    Decent pay, good benefits, growing industry. Lots of open jobs globally if your looking to move. Also in the states.

    Upper management, if they don’t like you good luck. Pay for non management position sucks. I wish I could pay my guys more

    Be more transparent to your employees. PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!
