    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.

    I have been working at Leprino Foods (less than an year)

    Pros

    The commute to work is doable. The attempt to make suitable changes exist. From time to time you will have free pizza as a taste-tester.

    Cons

    A complete good ole'boys club. Admits that they have not arrived to progression. Rather spend and waste unbelievable money by repeating errors in implementing applications than to operate with a forward-thinking approach with analysis to support approach.

    Pros

    Beautiful new modern plant with state of the art equipment.
    Average to slightly above as far as benefits and pay.
    Due to high employee turnover rate chances to move up are good.

    Cons

    Very stressful work enviorment due to very poor training in all areas, and little if no communication.
    Leadership group doesn't have a clue!!!
    Mandatory overtime you either volunteer or as they say you will be voluntold.
    Employee turnover rate is extremely high in all areas and job levels.
    Accident rate for the last year hit a record high!!!
    H.R. policies are very rigid not flexible whatsoever.
    Alot of chiefs and not enough indians to carry the work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN, LISTEN,LISTEN to what your employees are saying! This is a beautiful new plant and could be a great place to work if there was better leadership. The negative atmosphere and work enviroment is like a cancer. Employess need to know they have ownership in the company and are heard. Advice to new plant manager, it's time to make changes and get rid of some of your department managers and supervisors. You need to build your own leadership team with new people! You need to be more visible and interact with employess at every level.

    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    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.
