I was always welcome to give input on whatever discussion I was a part of. Everyone is treated fairly and given the opportunity to prove themselves. People tend to stay at their positions for a long time, so if you aren't willing to relocate across the country there won't be much upward mobility for you.

Overall a decent place to get your foot in the door in the manufacturing industry. I can’t speak for other business units, but feed nutrition is behind the times in technology. Especially things that could make them more efficient. Great pay and benefits but little room for advancement. Still a lot of the good old boy system in place. They run a very lean staffing program which would be fine if they had decent facilities and the technology to back it up. People are required to do more than one persons job a lot of times. Work/life balance is mediocre but manageable.
Pros
Pay, benefits, job security
Cons
Advancement opportunities, culture

Co-workers really help out a lot when you need it and they’re always there to support you... They are honest people and won’t hesitate to tell you the truth.

It is a job where your hours change and a lot of overtime. Dirty, dusty and nasty work environment. Hot in the summer and freezing in the winter. Only plus uniforms are supplied and washed for you. You have shower facilities and descent locker room.
Pros
Uniforms
Cons
Dusty work environment

Pretty average packaging job. Not exciting but your guaranteed 40 hours with the occasional weekend (and overtime pay) depending on the season. They try to foster a sense of community there, which is nice. Fair warning if you work on the packaging floor, its freezing so brace yourself.
Pros
Cafeteria, pretty cheap.
Cons
Could be too cold for some, VERY loud- be wary if you have any hearing issues

Management is shady and crooked. When you want to use your vacation days, they turn you around and make up reasons so you can’t use them. Management will literally get you fired and make you look bad when you’re trying to do your best in life.
When supervisors try and get you fired, HR doesn’t help. You have to call the ETHICS LINE and HR to submit a report. It takes 2 to 3 weeks or more for HR to call and speak with you about your situation. They take their time and don’t really want to help.
Pros
Pay well
Cons
Short breaks, need all new management

I worked in Corporate Accounting and it was degrading and demoralizing. I talked to HR and they knew of the problem but did nothing. The supervisors were bullies and were hateful. I was told to my face that since I went to college I should be smarter. I was told I wasn't Cargill material and when I tried to transfer out my supervisor would call the department and discourage them from interviewing me. The culture is cutthroat and deceitful. There was no team work or any sense of trying to work together. The supervisors did not like each other and used the employees as pawns in trying to get to each other. I was laid off during an economic down turn and it was the best thing that could have happened.
Pros
Pay
Cons
The people

Working at cargil was challenging at times They did not offer the greatest work and home balance as I would like them to. Management would be rude and disrespectful at times. I felt like the pay was not fair due to the amount of work we were expected to do.

Overall great corporate company to work for. But on a local level the management is very critical, micromanages, and doesn't allow for work life balance. The team that you work with is the best, just wish management would be held accountable for their actions.
Pros
great team, family atmosphere, outdoors and something different every day
Cons
Management, work life balance, very stressful
