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

    Pros

    Large company that has a lot of interesting business units

    Cons

    Bad at job forcasting. Told me there is a 90% hiring rate for interns at the beginning of my internship. Three months later they told me there was only a 50% hiring rate. Not sure how in three months it changed but it did

    Advice to Management

    Have better job forecasting so that interns have a more accurate idea of how likely a job will be when they are done.

    I worked at Cargill (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very great environment. People were super friendly. Most of the colleagues are very senior and professional with years of experience in food industry. Lots of networking opportunity inside company.

    Cons

    It's hard to learn this huge cooperation in a short time because the B2B business is everywhere in many industries. Everyone should know Cargill, but it's a company behind the scenes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have lot of advice because I was in one of unit. Also I was only an intern.
