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

Managerial (Former Employee)
New Delhi

I worked at Cargill full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCargill 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).

Pros:
a. Global Scale
b. Large number of business platforms

Consa. 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
