Leadership is an action, not a position…

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

Pros-Good people who care about the farmer, their families and the community

-Build your own empire! See the SW corner of the building for more information

Cons-Dysfunctional Executive Team - it's incredibly evident to all
-Inconsistent communication between departments
-No vision, strategy or formal business planning
-Disrespectful behavior is applauded as being assertive
-No accountability - extremely apparent in certain non-transparent areas of the business
-Very few corporate managers really know and understand the core business, dairy!
-No mentorship programs

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time to wake-up and smell the cow manure. You succeeded in driving out what you thought was the "cancer" in the organization, yet your problems continue to metastasize. Please do not waste anymore time. Appreciate the "real" Darigold employees who know the business and what it takes to run a profitable business. The farmers need loyal, experienced, hard-working dairymen not dairy divas. Go back to what worked which was focusing on running a profitable business versus deciding who to run out of your business to make it profitable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
