Good, challenging yet employee-friendly place to work
Business Development Manager (Former Employee), Caracas – July 25, 2014
Pros: access to training, in my case a year-long marketing "academy", with parts of it taking place in the company's hq in mn
Cons: cargill is a huge company, and with that comes (naturally) some bureaucratic inertia that can be a hard to deal with at times
I worked for Cargill in Venezuela, which means the outside environment (social, political, economical) in which we operated was relatively hostile. Even so, the company was able to pose challenging work (and train you for it), while also providing a great work environment: safe and cordial.

Ops/Customer Service (Former Employee), Evansville IN – July 20, 2014
Pros: pay was half decent but required alot of hours
Cons: no worklife balance. .forced working lunches. . rude and arrogant managers..pay
Typical Big Company. . You are seen as a number and not valued. Rude and stuck up Managers that won't even acknowledge you when they finally decide to roll out of bed and show up to work. They will lay you off without even thinking twice. Save your time and effort applying here. . They are constantly changing their minds and you cannot enjoy a work – more... life balance. Constant job sharing for locations. . You don't know from day to day if you have to travel to a different location. Managers constantly micro managing because their own inflated insecurities.. They will treat you like your 5 years old. Basically if you want respect and actually want a life, do not apply at Cargill. – less
Business Operations Manager (Current Employee), Kansas City, KS – July 8, 2014
Pros: diverse businesses allow for grand opportunities in different areas
Cons: diversity & inclusion of employees and ideas
Cargill has a rich history with diverse businesses. I had the opportunity to work in several different businesses totaling 10 years of my career. The people are great - from the CEO to the operators. Sometime you find the middle managers who have been around for numerous years are "set in their ways" and the inclusion and diverse of ideas are hard to – more... introduce. – less
