    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time

    Pros

    Leprino really takes care of their employees, they take training and safety very seriously and work hard to ensure that everyone gets the training that they need to maintain a safe and productive work environment

    Cons

    Locations are not that great. Specifically Lemoore, CA is in the middle of nowhere with bad air quality and water quality. However, this is necessary due to the proximity of all the dairy farms.

    Pros

    Tough to find one. Some genuine people but they leave quickly. Great Denver location in up and coming neighborhood

    Cons

    Passive aggression around every corner. Who you know is more important than what you know. Huge egos prevent real innovation. If you are a woman, be prepared to top out at manager unless you happen to know someone that will give you a token position but no authority

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and start over - take out the trash- even the ones that have protection.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation compared to other similar companies.
    There are some really nice people.
    Stable company that is growing.

    Cons

    Very little work life balance. Many people have accumulated health problems and family issues due to stress and unmanageable workloads. You can see this in several people that have started out in great shape and left with 50-100 extra pounds and the look of extreme fatigue on their faces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your Caliper assessment off your refrigerator and get over yourselves.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Perhaps the salary, but it's short lived when you soon realize the crap you have to endure.

    Cons

    Too many to list and not enough space on GlassDoor to list all of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire for God's sake and go public so there can be some checks and balances.

    I have been working at Leprino Foods

    Pros

    An intellectual challenge day in and day out. There's something new to be learned everyday, and although the end goal may be the same, rarely the same route to achieve said goal is taken every day.

    Cons

    Fast-paced environment so the learning curve is steep. There's pressure to perform well, but that comes with every job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and working on the culture change into the 21st century.
