I worked at Cargill full-time

Pros

This is truly an amazing company to work for. They do have great benefits by today's standards, decent pay, time of (12 days first year), and great amenities. Overall Cargill's ethics are second to none in the world of business and they drill that into you. They want the best out of their employees and they show you that. There is a large amount freedom and flexibility.

Another major is you will work with a lot of talented men and women. Some of the smartest people I have met are at this company.

Cons

One major problem is if you are a male and Caucasian. They are more interested in meeting their diversity requirements and promoting based off of skin color and gender than anything else right now. They should promote the best candidate, not the one that fits on paper because of race or gender.

Employee recognition is not that great...

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

    Pros

    Huge and if young and willing to drink the KoolAid one can gain great experience. Huge company with a lot of things happening.

    Cons

    If one is part of an acquired organization they must assume that there is a bulls-eye on their back. We were told all kinds of glowing things about long term commitment and loyalty, but as soon as the acquisition is final the outside minions come in and the cutting begins. The more senior the more vulnerable.

    Advice to Management

    Simply not very impressed. This organization's creativity is buried deep inside "the box" so far that they do not know what the lid or even a corner looks like.


  2. "Good employer"

    Cons

    Long Hours and the pay is average.

    Advice to Management

    Give the opportunity to employees to relocate if the situation arises.
