I worked at Cargill full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Extremely family oriented company. Everyone was extremely welcoming and always willing to help, which is nice coming in as an intern. Great pay, great people, great experience. If you're looking for an internship that will truly challenge you, not just one where you'll deliver mail and be at somebody's beck and call, than this company is for you. I was assigned my own project and was highly successful. I was offered a full time job, however, I declined as the location/opportunity wasn't right for me.

Cons

Locations can be in the middle of nowhere since it's an Ag company so you'll need to be okay with that. Typically you won't get the jobs in the "preferable" locations until you've worked your way up.

Advice to Management

Designate times throughout the interns' time with you guys to travel to at least one or two other sites (even in other business units) so that they can get an idea of everything that is Cargill. Perhaps an intern got their internship in a BU that they didn't necessarily care for but seeing other BU's and what they could potentially be doing made them want to stay with the company.

    I have been working at Cargill as an intern

    Pros

    The company is very environmentally aware.

    Cons

    Cargill is so large that it may be difficult for you to find one job or role that you're particularly adept at.
