    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are good compared to the rest of the industry around their plants. People seem to gel together and become more like a family which is probably due to the number of hours they spend together.

    Cons

    Leprino Foods is very demanding and places a huge emphasis on manufacturing and shipping their products. A normal day is eleven to twelve hours. Expectations are that everyone must attend social events or their absence is noted.

    Advice to Management

    Overall people are wary of plant and corporate management. Values are clearly stated and routinely talked about, but not followed on a daily basis if they get in the way of shipping product.

    Pros

    Decent annual pay, but you will work for it.
    Provides a product that is in demand.

    Cons

    Long Hours, Old Technologies, Poor Vacation, Inflexible work schedules.
    Every department is only looking out for their best interests.
    You have to get everything in writing when working with other departments to CYA.
    Most of IT is contractors and they do not care if the company is successful and their work (or lack of) shows that.
    IT's customer service has gotten worse as more off-shore resources are used to "save money".

    Advice to Management

    Leprino has a high turnover rate for a reason. Stop talking about all the changes that need to happen and actually make them happen.

    The old phrase "tripping over dollars to pick up pennies" is more like a motto at Leprino. They will throw lots of money at short term fixes but wont invest to fix the real problem.

    The gap between the workers and executives is large and until middle management starts looking out for the companies best interests Leprino will continue with its high turn-over.

    Pros

    The culture is awesome, what I'd hoped existed in the world. I've felt trusted, supported, and empowered from my first day. Perfect conditions for success. Competitive salary. Opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Being at a desk all day. Would like another week of Bavarian.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - sharing what you know, supporting and trusting your staff. Focusing on the big things and making morally conscious decisions.

    Pros

    Has great insurance, plenty of hours, lots of overtime, and job security.

    Cons

    Not as family oriented as they claim, training is not as complete as it should be, very little time off, and minimal leadership on behalf of the supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that some of your turn over in most areas is because of bullying by other employees.

    Pros

    Most people are willing to share what they are working on and take you under their wing. The benefits are really nice even though I don't use them (I use my husbands). In my department I have been promoted twice. They want to try to fix their employee engagement and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes. Some old stragglers of yesterdays culture can still creep up and put a damper on positive outlooks. Management needs to get a backbone.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop benefiting the bad eggs and making the good ones suffer for it.

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for. Great profit sharing plan. Growing at a steady and controlled speed. Good leadership at the top.

    Cons

    Seems to be a communication and vision gap between upper management and middle managers. In some department's, the people in managerial roles are only there because of their tenure with the company. They have no managerial skills and should not be allowed to continue in their roles as they are driving out good workers.

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Leprino said it right at the annual meeting. We cannot continue to do things like we have done them for the last 40 years if we intend to continue to grow. Review the managers yourself, spend time with lower level staff members and listen to their opinions. A lot of good ideas are being stifled by bad managers. A lot of great talent is walking out because of inept people in a position of authority.
