    I worked at Cargill full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, wish I could give 0 stars. It's a racist, favoritism type place and needs complete over haul, management and all.

    Cons

    Terrible place. They will use you and get rid of you. High turn over rate. Company sucks.

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

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers (most). Great holiday, vacation, and personal time off (currently but changing). Challenging work.

    Cons

    No training or very little. Younger workers given more opportunities, advancements, training, less likely to be laid off. Handbook rules not applied to all employees consistently. Supervisors gossiping about current employees to co -workers. Everyone apprehensive of being laid off. Wages frozen. Overworked/under paid. Jobs being outsourced to India. Current employees required to train India workers to do their jobs. All accounting, HR, and IT jobs are being outsourced. Good workers let go while questionable workers retained. All under the guise of who is a so called team player.

    Advice to Management

    American workers deserve the same loyalty and consideration Cargill expects from them. Like most large companies money is your motivation and you are moving off shore so you do not have to pay taxes.

    Pros

    Breadth & Depth of Cargill business units allow for a unique perspective on global trends in a wide range of industries.

    Cons

    Business units operate in independent silos. Very little cross functional efficiencies or synergies across industries and business units.

    Pros

    True diversity of businesses and business models. Lots of variety if will to go looking for it. Global workforce creates great opportunities to work cross cultures.

    Cons

    Highly matrixed organization and an allergy to top-down directives translates into long lead times to get things done and a consensus culture. Tendency to manage by anecdote.

    Advice to Management

    Emwbrace a bit of top down decision making. Continue to be on the forefront of issues that impact trade, worker's rights and society. That's made me proud to call myself an employee.

    Pros

    Money, food at meetings, watching the superintendent cry

    Very poor training. Equipment never was fixed and management was a joke. Terrible hours and work life balance was not good. Stay away from cargill Desmoines

    Advice to Management

    Learn the process and be respectful to those that you manage. How can you hold others accountable underneath you if you don't know the business yourself
