    I have been working at Cargill full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Family owned, successful company that continually takes in an unbelievable amount of profit each year.

    Cons

    They company is really working to lean out - there is a lot of job insecurity, especially if you are a senior employee. Coworkers have lost their jobs, only to have them re-posted after six months or so at a lower pay rate. If you are someone who is willing to drink the kool-aid, you'll do well here; otherwise, don't provide your "candor" when asked.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your loyal employees, and ensure employees promoted into management roles are actually management material. Lots of managers who could use more training or would be more well-suited in non-management roles here. I have a lot of respect for our CEO, he is a great leader. No comment on CFO. I wish there were more members of management who manage the way our CEO has in his past roles within the company.
