      Advice to Management

      Focus more time on the employees wants as well as their needs. Happy employees work harder, and stick around longer, and it may not be that expensive to do.

      Cons

      Business model create none teem work, more create competition betwin employees. The communication langage betwin employees and manager + the teem work should to be improve to obtain engagment... The engagment survey is to general.

      Advice to Management

      The manager should to hiring outside employees with better skills management. The talent recruting (service center) have to use skills management test to complete the hiring process for management position. The communication and teem work should to be improve to obtain engagment... To muth decision it’s take by the corpo and it’s not muth applicable in the facilities.

        Negative Outlook

        I worked at Cargill full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        None none none none none

        Cons

        They hire you as a "flex" worker to start...which is a fancy way of saying temp. 3 years later and I still hadn't been hired on permanently. Management is on a big power trip and extremely disrespectful. I was basically told I wasn't allowed to enjoy my day...we are here to work, not to have fun. Gave me benefits and then a year and a half later took them away with no notice. Worst morale and atmosphere to work in. DON'T...

        Advice to Management

        Listen and acknowledge what employees are telling you. Try to work as a team and build up youŕ staff instead of tearing them down everyday.

        I worked at Cargill full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Training. Cargill has a great online and standard training program. There is a reason the company has the name Cargill School. Get in, get trained, get out.

        Cons

        Tons of middle management trying to stay busy by micromanaging your every move. Low pay, high workload. No location choice, despite what they claim. High school mentality of the staff. Get ready to get thrown under the bus if it benefits them. Tons of caddy girls in their cliques backstabbing and clawing for promotion.

        Advice to Management

        Don't let your middle management put the younger staff under their boot heel.
