Picnic Skinner (Former Employee), Ottumwa, IAApril 21, 2014
Pros: paychecks
Cons: supervisiors and hr
Some of the supervisors were very rude to people. There was nothing enjoyable about working at Cargill other than the paychecks and some of the co workers. Every job there was hard on your body.

Meat Processor (Former Employee), Friona, TXApril 11, 2014
Pros: very friendly and welcoming enviroment
Cons: standing all day, very hard job machines running fast
Fast past work environment, people are very friendly and help you out when needed. I was able to loose a lot of weight from constant movement. Managers treated you fairly, hardest part of job is standing and having to stay over extra hours and car pooling

Cargill was great until they decided to Outsource IT
Senior Trade Floor IT Support (Current Employee), Houston, TXApril 3, 2014
Pros: culture, salary
Cons: benefits (health insurance)
Cargill has been a great Company to work for until now that Top Management decided to Outsource IT.. Our Direct Management has been the best one I have had in my previous experience.

Being a Trade Floor here at Cargill, the environment is great. Very polite Traders and patient which for the most part they are not. Is the Culture of Cargill that makes – more... them this way.

There is no hard part to this job if you have the Customer Service Skills and the Enough Knowledge to break/fix issues.

Our IT Team is great but we are very unfortunate that we are getting hit with the Outsourcing Method.... – less

Difficult place to work
Supervisor (Current Employee), Gainesville, GAApril 3, 2014
Pros: nothing really comes to mind...
Cons: low pay, favoritism, low talent level of management
Cargill has a good ole boy culture that allows for little growth unless you're in the club. There is little focus on improvement and much focus on fire fighting. Almost every day some problem was solved again that had been solved numerous times before with no focus placed on putting something in place to prevent the issue from happening again. People – more... are routinely recognized for heroic measures taken to solve some crisis when those who try to put processes in place to prevent problems are not listened to at all. Talent level is low in management ranks with very young people put in high roles when they don't have the experience to handle those roles. Micro-management is the norm and people in lower management roles are not allowed to actually do their jobs without approval for most any move they want to make. Accountability is handled on a very selective level - certain people are accountable for doing their jobs and exhibiting leadership skills while others aren't. I have recently been able to manage most of my work in a 40-44 hour week. Many people I work with, however, must work 50 plus hours each week to keep from drowning. Most disappointing of all, the pay is very low for the expectations set. – less

Bad People in Charge
Dairy Focus Consultant (Former Employee), Pa-OHApril 2, 2014
Cons: poor people in charge
I had the worst boss and co-workers a person could imagine. The breaking point was when they asked me as a sales person to price fix and lie to customers. zero ethics with the people I would spend my time with.

skill worker (Former Employee), Plainview, TXMarch 31, 2014
Pros: insurance
Cons: at times stressful
different products always being ran. keeping me on my toes. I leaned to stay calm and focused. I learned in being part of management, we must work close together with employees , make sure they have what they need to do there jobs. ( not necessarily what they want). making things run like they should and better.

Probestand operator (Current Employee), New Madrid, MOMarch 21, 2014
Pros: compensation is good.
Cons: long hours, and unnerving management
During harvest a typical day is very long and tiring. Knowing that you have to work those same long days every day for 6 days a week is very sad. Co-workers are very friendly and family oriented. I've learned quite a bit in the last 4 years.
