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

Pros

Value driven, supportive of employee growth and development. Dynamic company that enables one to try different roles, responsibilities and even businesses.

Cons

Tends to be slower than other companies on adopting new ideas or responding to changes in the marketplace. Innovation tends to be slow too.

    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.
