I have been working at Dairy Farmers of America full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Work load is acceptable. In my department time off is easily granted. Not so much for operations.

Cons

Becoming your typical american corporation.

    I worked at Dairy Farmers of America for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Business opportunities are readily available in the market...if this organization was willing to make necessary changes customers would offer up an endless supply of opportunities to choose from. Currently, customers actively seek any other possible alternative before calling DFA.

    Cons

    The debt load this management team has taken on to pay legal settlements is a HUGE burden that is unbalanced market to market (ie. debt incurred in the Southeast and Northeast which is being paid for by growth in the West). It will be a decade or more to get out from under this load...and robbing Peter to pay Paul is not a strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to strongly consider selling off assets to pay down the debt...before this breaks up the organization altogether.
