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

Pros

If you are early in your career, you will get great training. If you demonstrate capabilities, there are good advancement opportunities early in a career.

Cons

A very strong gravity to pull everybody to one like mind kills creativity and initiative. The company is quite political. Try as they might, they have never understood customers. If you are a truly outstanding high achieving salesperson, you will never be compensated nor have the opportunities here that you will get elsewhere. Run dont walk if you are that person.

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

    Pros

    There is some flexibility when it comes to working from home if your position requires the use of a laptop. They have a gym onsite. Large company with a variety of opportunities.

    Cons

    Many employees have been there a long time. These are in senior positions and do not encourage outside the box thinking. Salaries are relatively low. HR says benefits are part of the overall package, but the benefit package is only average. In finance you work long hours. The company is always aiming at cutting cost and have lost immense talent as a result of that.

    Advice to Management

    Doing okay.
