I worked at Cargill full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Good stable company
- Very good diversity
- Great people

Cons

- A lot of under handed politics
- Management did not engage its employees and or knew their work loads
- Management does not listen to suggestions and/or improvement advise

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees get to know them, as they are not just KRA's and reports. And when they feel that; they will grow the business for you and produce great work without fear.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cargill full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Conservative/safe, ethical, exposure to different industries w/o losing benefits or starting all over at a new company.

    Cons

    Hard to change the ingrained culture of old school, white-man, top-down management style. It's struggling trying to make all BUs more aligned or cohesive.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Cargill full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One can go for a long time with doing little to nothing and still be able to keep the job or even change jobs within the company.
    Work & Life balance is really respected. Most of the people, 90% of the work-force is out of the parking lot by 4:50pm.

    Cons

    Communication with employees and supervisors is unprofessional and futile since most of the time job duties are unclear. As a result, one finds it hard to keep oneself motivated and arguments are rampant. Year-end reviews don't mean anything for the employee's professional growth and career. Old buddy system is at work all the time.
