    I have been working at Kemps LLC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great hours and location, good coworkers. Benefits are decent. Great working environment.

    Cons

    DFA is not the wonderful farmer conglomerate we hear about. They're laying off our employees left & right. Also, no room for advancement. Some employees have flatly been told they can't apply for other positions within Kemps. Favoritism and micro management are the norm. Overall,a great company but I fear for my future here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for your employees. Loyalty should matter. Live up to the mission statement.

    Pros

    Good treats on breaks, small enough to have access to top management. Well respected brand in the MN community and honestly does produce healthy milk beverages

    Cons

    frequent ownership changes mean you can't ever count on what might come next

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    protect your employees from negative changes from all the industry and ownership changes.
