    I have been working at Cargill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and PTO, they value a work/life balance and care about their employees and retaining talent

    Cons

    Large corporate feel. Takes 5 days to do what should take 2 hours. Many layers which leads to politics in some cases.

    I worked at Cargill full-time

    Pros

    Cargill, the parent company is a great organisation

    Cons

    Cargill Business Services (CBS Bangalore) is the worst company ever worked with. The management is handled by unethical people. Most manager's do not know how to hand people. They spoil many individual career's, loyal employees are not appreciated and no efforts made to retain them. It looks very evident that some managers working here have joined with the influence of some of the senior managers already with Cargill...

    I have been working at Cargill full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Good working environment

    Cons

    Terrible salary negotiation. Neglecting a talent ability.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful towards talent. Having standard is fine, but neglecting the talent over standard at all is just a terrible way to negotiate

    I worked at Cargill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Tries hard to cultivate a good company culture, encouraging everyone to be a leader. - Decent work-life balance. - Given relatively good flexibility, accountability and responsibility to achieve results. - encourages change but unfortunately it stops there. - truly tries hard to empower its employees and ensure that the good ones are retained. However when an employee is perceived as being below par, it’s ‘people...

    Cons

    - most leaders have worked in Cargill for too long to change their ways of working. Inbreeding does not bring about positive change nor does it allow the birth of pedigrees. - too much internal networking expected. Read ‘politics’. One has to be in the other’s good books if they were to see things done. I can fully understand that this is so in many large organizations but in Cargill, this is taken a step too far. -...

    Advice to Management

    - Know who the pieces of deadwood are in the company, weed them out and ask them to leave the company instead of putting them in cold storage, hoping that they won’t bring trouble. This is a sheer waste of company resources and only serve to reward those who are not performing. - People in Cargill pride themselves to have worked in the company for a long time. This is good but these long term employees don’t know that...

    I have been working at Cargill full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Offers plenty of opportunities to pursue lateral movement across other departments and industries Great benefits Pay seems reasonable Culture and values set in writing are ones I strive to meet everyday in my personal life Job security seems very high Great work/life balance Plenty of vacation days Great opportunities to advance yourself with certifications and classes paid for by Cargill

    Cons

    Certain offices can get fairly political and hierarchical There can be a disconnect with the vision and goals set by each office/department/boss (lack of purpose and goals tend to lead to underachievement and disengagement)

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend focusing more on setting your vision and goals and being more deliberate with stating them to your teams. Employees become less engaged when they don't have a vision to help pursue as a team and especially become disengaged when they don't have a leader they are willing to do it with as well. I would put my attention not on underachieving teams, but the managers of the underachieving teams.
