    Cargill (in India) is good only for trading. Dont make the mistake of joining its B2C (consumer packs) business.

    Pros

    Cargill is a trading company. If you are planning to be a trader at Cargill....go ahead. There isnt a better company than Cargill as far as trading is concerned. However, dont make the mistake of joining its B2C business (Consumer Packs division).

    a. Global Scale
    b. Large number of business platforms

    Cons

    a. Short sighted policies (sales/marketing). HR non existent!
    b. Poor pay master
    c. "Babuji" culture
    d. Arrogant Sr Management, operating like a one man show
