Pros

Excellent Benefit package, friendly environment, easy commute (away from the cities), plenty of opportunities for various fields of science

Cons

Seems next to impossible to receive a promotion. Several co-workers state that a person can expect only one promotion in your tenure at Cargill. After that, it's necessary to leave the company and come back years later at a higher position.

Advice to Management

Your KRA/PMP system seems good, but all the decisions are already made prior to the reviews, and that makes the process much less personal.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a great work enviroment. I enjoyed going to work as most people there are pretty easy going. The management does a great job of empowering employees. Getting time off is pretty easy as Cargill does great job of helping employees manage their business and personal time.

    Cons

    As almost every employee in any company would say, they lack on their salary. They stick by their guns and repeat that the benefits are way better than anywhere else. My biggest problem was that they will pay based on levels...not performance. I had two managers in a degree required position without degrees, which they paid them a huge salary. Both of these managers were horrible with personnell management. They had NO leadership skills at all. Both of them got their jobs by scratching the right backs. Kissing butt = better salary.

    Advice to Management

    My advice= if you are going to say degree required, stick with it. If you see potential in an employee to succed in a management position, make them management.
