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

Pros

- Communities; Heavy focus on giving back to the communities in which they serve.
- Customer-focused; Serving the customer is at the core of everything they do.
- Culture; Friendly work atmosphere

Cons

- Enterprise Vision; Disparate companies hinder ability to align on common vision and achieve operational efficiencies.
- Benefits; Average for the size of the company
- Compensation; Seems to lag behind industry.
- Culture; Very relationship based. Can be a pro, but takes a very long time to develop relationships.

Advice to Management

The company seems to be challenged in finding ways to leverage talent brought in from outside; especially mid-career employees. The focus tends to be all about what you've done at Cargill, not finding ways to leverage skills/knowledge individuals have acquired from previous employers. Be more aggressive and creative in tapping into the knowledge/skills of your 'experienced' employees. Seek ways to tap into the creative solutions those who've seen them work outside Cargill.
