I have been working at Cargill full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Cargill has great people and is very relationship oriented.
If you're interested in international experience, Cargill encourages people to take overseas assignments.
There is a long history of solid business ethics that leaders hold onto strongly.

Cons

As with most companies, there are pockets of very poor leadership in places.
Cargill has become very focused on reducing costs, often in a non-productive and short sighted manner.
Although it is a private company, Cargill has begun reacting to short term revenue slumps more like a public company - cutting costs severely as opposed to building for the future.

Advice to Management

Stop being short sighted, take the long term view.
Focus on true talent management, at all levels of the organization, not just the top.

    Pros

    Great values that match well with the values I have personnally. Cargill is very respectful of employees personal needs and i have found them to be very accomodating.

    Cons

    Cargill is very conservative and can be bureaucratic. Things sometimes move much slower than they should with more analysis than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Take a longer term view. Cargill is very subject to cyclical events that may cause a shorter term view than necessary.

    Pros

    I like working for Cargill, I think that it's a good company with a lot to offer employees. The size of scope of Cargill can be overwhelming and encouraging at the same time.

    Cons

    Very complex. Trying to navigate Cargill can be difficult even after many years of working in the Cargill.

    Development is something that you have get on your own and can be difficult to get.
