    I worked at CHS Inc full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    CHS has many professionals within the field that you work in. Everyone is willing to help you succeed, as long as you seek out the help. The pension plan is pretty great also, since not many companies offer it anymore and it is 100% employer funded. Convenient location of corporate office on the southeast side of the the Twin Cities. CHS does an excellent job of giving back to the community, which is important... for a company with little to no brand recognition.

    Cons

    Salary seems to be on the weaker side when compared to other competing grain companies. Bonuses are based on personal goals, business unit goals, and divisional goals. Since the grain markets have tanked in the past couple years, bonuses have been slim to none. Management is still the good ole boy motto, and if you aren't part of the club, you aren't moving up. 401k match is also slightly weak when compared to... other companies surrounding the Twin Cities. They just added paternal leave of 2 weeks, which is still well behind many other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just invest in human capital at the start, continue investing to help both the company and the employee be successful. If the employee feels like CHS is investing in them, the return should be greater for the company.

    "Stuck in slow motion — unable to change ‘boys club’ mentality"

    I worked at CHS Inc full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of nice people to work with. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Boys club mentality. Make friends with the right manager and they will make sure you rise up even though you don’t understand or know the business. Stuck in slow-motion for any change or improvement. Talk change and forward thinking but no one will actually do it. Lots of young staff with many not willing to do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let experience and knowledge walk out your door because your culture hasn’t adapted to flexibility and keeping skilled employees. People are not resistant to change - middle management is and that feeds down to others. If you’re going to talk the talk, then walk the walk instead of just saying words you don’t mean or ever follow through on.
