"There are many different areas within Cargill. If you are willing to not be pushed around, then any of them are a great place to work!"

"Ok if you are ok with a 'plateau career'; given the few token women in top management may be difficult for ambitious women to meet full potential here."

"If you are in a commercial position you have to decide between family or career. Flexible working is not possible in commercial teams. The men see maternity leave as a holiday!"

"I see some women in leafership roles but there are very few. There's flexibility to accommodate school schedules but you alsp frel like that will diminish your perception as a contrubutor. There are lots of men with wives that stay at home so you can see how the culture is mire male centered. "

"You have to push for flexibility, but it is granted when requested. Not a culture of flexibility, but you can make it work. Paid leave is under a salary continuation program that is much better than most. "
"Cargill was a great company for woman in the 1990s and early 2000s. In the past 5 years, Cargill has change a great deal - downsizing, eliminating departments. How woman will be treated in the 'New Cargill' has yet to be established."
"management is male-dominated"
"I worked in HR where there are typically a lot of females in any company and it was the same at Cargill but I was surprised that there weren't more at a higher level. I was in a role that had a lot of visibility across business lines and working with leaders at all levels. I found the top two levels executives extremely easy to work with and open to hearing a new perspective - very empowering. However, I was held back in my role and my ability to earn what I was worth because of my lack of negotiation skills when I started the role and a male lead department that was more focused on sticking to the budget than seeing the value I was bringing to the table."
"I have been working here for 8 years since graduation and have been in 3 different departments. The culture depends a lot what department you are in. Overall it is a company driven by men and even though the company leadership tries to change things (while there is no women on the leadership team) the middle management is predominantly an "old boy club". I came across a lot of men whose wives are stay-at-home-moms and they generally lack understanding for women who have kids. Depending on department "flexible" time is allowed, which means if you are sick or have a sick kid you are expected to work from home. Men are given more challenging projects and even if you ask for it you will be ignored or get an excuse. Overall, I have seen few women succeed and they are mostly without children or were hired externally, which means they progressed already outside of Cargill."
"I think overall women and men are treated equally. I think there is room for improvement with the maternity leave program. 6 weeks paid is not competitive compared to other companies. I also think that even though they offer flexible work arrangements there is a stigma around taking it."
"They do not value women accountants as much as a woman/man engineer. They believe in paying a medium wage despite how much value or work you provide. Don't be stupid and let them take advantage of you."
"I've been with Cargill 5 years and I work from home. Work life balance is very important to Cargill and family always comes first. My flexible schedule allows me to have a career and a family and I am so grateful for that. No one ever questions me if I have to take my kids to a doctor's appointment or if they are home sick and in the background on a conference call. I am grateful to Cargill for the opportunities I have been given. I feel lucky every day."
"I have worked here for a short period of time, and women are in the majority of support roles. Everyone is treated fairly and I can say it is a much better work environment than my previous job."
"Understanding when things come up with kids."
"Great place to work. Many opportunities. Great leadership. Many women leaders in the different Business Units (over 60 business units at Cargill), however, the top leadership of the company is primarily men. Work/life balance is great. My BU was very supportive of managing home life with work. I could take a little time off in the middle of the day to visit my son on his special day at school...as long as I was getting my work done, no issues."
"The culture is very supportive of a work life balance and of family. An employee-focus aids in the training and development of your career and offers the ability to progress in a direction of your choosing. Highly collaborative environment ensures engagement."
"I can't speak about any of the office jobs. In the 4 years I've been there I've only worked out on the production floor. I've seen gender discrimination in promotions, as well as racial discrimination. Short term, this is a good enough job because it pays well. Long term, you're asking for health problems that they will bend over backwards to get out of paying Comp for. I do like the supervisor I have now, he speaks and treats me with more respect than my former supervisor."
"Very flexible with working hours"
