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

Pros

Established company
Big company perks; training, cafeteria, wellness programs, etc

Cons

Without a "mentor" you should not expect to go anywhere
Once you're in, they prefer outside talent rather than internal candidates for open roles

Advice to Management

Promote based on performance

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Salt of the earth people. Supportive and ethical culture where people are valued, and folks want to do the right thing. Opportunity for new challenges and to take your career in different directions.

    Cons

    Consensus culture and a myriad of policies can make for slow decision making. Tendency over the years to cut costs and run more and more lean, means people can become overloaded and this can impact performance and engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Be bold in establishing a future vision for growth.
