Pros

Community of people built from a cooperative spirit.

Cons

Focus on ranking performance rather than developing it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support all levels of the community, not just management. Don't keep a long term employee that under performs if it damages the division or forward progress of strategies.

    Wake up - it's 2013 and still the company is run by a "Good Old Boy Network."

    I have been working at Land O'Lakes full-time

    Pros

    In the past had a great culture! Now the company is being run by a Pillsbury culture. All the employees that General Mills did not want to take with them when they bought Pillsbury are not at Land O Lakes. What does that say for the company.

    Cons

    Very political. If you disagree, keep it to yourself. It's all about the numbers. Once was a collaborative organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They are in the trenches daily. They know what your customers are saying.
