Building a brighter future
We’ve been a growth company from the start, and today, our focus hasn’t changed. Every day, we’re continually striving to be one of the best food and agricultural companies of our era. With three diversified businesses that touch nearly every aspect of the food production cycle, we’re in a unique position that allows us to grow strategically.
And we’re not just looking to grow here at home. We’re committed to providing commercially viable, economically sustainable food and agricultural systems in our communities and throughout the world. To continue to make this happen, we know we need the right people.
A history of responsible, sustainable business
As a cooperative, we have rural roots. Land O’Lakes was formed by farmers and for farmers. These hardworking men and women were committed to responsible, sustainable stewardship of the land. Today, we’re proud to carry on this tradition.
What this means is we’re proud to be leaders in improving agricultural sustainability. In fact, some of our member-owners are often early adopters of innovative practices to power their businesses, grow their crops and raise their animals.
We also think responsibility means reaching out into our communities and across the world. Helping others is just what we do as a company–and as people. The Land O’Lakes Foundation proactively helps rural communities by donating resources that develop and strengthen organizations dedicated to hunger relief, education and community. And our International Development Division embodies our commitment to global food security and sustainable agriculture.
Help us make a difference
Land O’Lakes is a place where people are expected to, and get to, make a difference every day. Our employees have a chance to make a real impact. And while we play a leading role in the farm-to-market process, our career opportunities go far beyond the traditional agribusiness professions., including with our local member cooperatives.
For us, best talent isn’t a nice to have, it is a must have. So we continually invest in our employees. Competitive wages, best-in-class benefits packages, and a variety of value-added programs help employees live healthy lives and grow their careers. We value people with a wide range of talents, experiences and perspectives--and we actively support and celebrate this diversity in our workplace.
We’re always looking for talented, passionate people to join our team.

I have been working at Land O'LakesRecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
The management cares about their emploees. There are opportunities to be apart of projects if interested. They give back to the employees and have more diversity programs then before. Generally trying to be a more diversified company.
There are no developed career paths. If you want to come to the company to grow that is extremely hard to do. The maternity leave is not goood at all for the size company that it is or trying to grow into. You only get 5 weeks partially paid. They do not offer any paternity leave. Recently when upper management has been asked about the maternity leave the try to avoid the question and say it is being worked on but does not offer any information on this. They are trying to promote women in the work place but are very far away from really doing that.
Advice to Management
Work on establishing career paths to grow your employees from within. If you want to market yourself as a large company make sure that you offering want other large employers do for their employees such as promoting women and offering better maternity/ paternity leave.
