Pros

The company has allowed me to move into new more challenging roles within the organization which have allowed for personal growth and to further my career.

Cons

They have invested way to much at one time into IT infrastructure an struggle sometimes at the delivery.

    Pros

    The external customers were great to deal with. The bonus was good jingle in the pocket.

    Cons

    Working with people who throw others under the bus is not my cup of tea.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your precious offices and LEARN what goes on in the departments. Step outside of YOUR BOX!

    Pros

    Household name and Fortune 250 company. Some pockets of excellence scattered among largely mediocre organization. Pretty competitive salaries. Decent corporate offices and resources. Cooperative business model; company owned by dairy farmer and co-op members.

    Cons

    Disappointing senior leadership -- very top-down leadership style; don't trust employees. Organization very resistant to change. Much less employee friendly than it once was. None of the company's businesses can forecast well -- year-end numbers always a guessing game. Most departments staffed poorly, very thin. Company has quietly laid off a considerable amount of employees in past year.

    Advice to Management

    Performance focused and employee friendly shouldn't be mutually exclusive. Land O'Lakes hasn't seemed to find the right formula to allow both elements to coexist these days. The organization needs a significant cultural realignment.
