I have been working at Cargill as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent work environment; supportive and energetic colleagues; private company focused on long-term objectives; a core business that is stable (as compared to sectors like technology).

Cons

It is somewhat difficult to advance because no one wants to leave the company. Also, the sheer size of the firm sometimes impedes communications reaching a world-wide employee population.

Advice to Management

Continue to communicate company strategy and goals and how each employee can contribute to Cargill's success

    Pros

    Extremely talented and smart people willing to help develop employees. A very family friendly company to work for with lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    Depending upon the area you started in, I found it difficult to be considered for other openings in different departments. The company can feel a little large and disconnected at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but provide more support to employees looking to move to new roles and departments.
