    I worked at Cargill as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They subsidized rent for internship, get to live in Minneapolis, Decent compensation

    Cons

    Had to fight HR for fair compensation for internship, No intern activities scheduled by Cargill, The whole internship seemed off the cuff and was poorly planned. There seemed to be no real communication between HR and management. They attract poor talent. We were mislead on multiple occasions and the projects overall seemed incredibly worthless to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your internship if you hope to attract top talent in the future.
