    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).

    Pros:
    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
