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

Pros

Awesome coworkers, intriguing work, reasonable work/life balance.

Cons

Slightly behind the times, pay could be more competitive.

Advice to Management

Invest more in your employees (socials, team outings, etc). This tends to go a long way with younger professionals who might be on the fence (stay or leave) thanks to a predominantly older/experienced workforce and slightly non-progressive culture.

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

    Pros

    Culture is base on excellent values & principles, private company which still values its family heritage, best people I've ever met and looks at business for the long term win, not short term gains.

    Cons

    Location isn't close to where I grew up, otherwise, I have had few complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Stand firm in continuing to lead with values first! Its what I have been most attracted to for 15 yrs.

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cargill as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great job security
    large facility, many different roles possible without moving locations
    safety culture
    friendly people, good community

    Cons

    work can be repetitive, boring
    too much emphasis on small changes, quick dollar reduction. managers don't think long term and/or big picture
    wouldn't recommend moving to Blair. Although Cargill employees are kind and welcoming, the town is NOT AT ALL. If you didn't grow up around there, you are treated terribly by locals
    advancement seems to be slow and hard to come by

    Advice to Management

    challenge your best employees more in their work. some very smart people work here and are under-utilized
