    Pros

    Our member’s owners are investing in making Darigold a best in class dairy company. I appreciate and value the courage our owners and leadership are demonstrating in making hard decisions that will allow the Company to be great for years to come. We are already seeing good performance, despite headwinds from a bear market! I like the energy the changes are bringing; value my colleagues that have great knowledge and passion around doing the right thing in a professional manner; and the opportunities the transformation offers to all employees that are committed to Darigold’s success.

    Cons

    Some team members are looking at the negative side of things vs the positive

    Advice to Management

    Keep going

    Pros

    Darigold is growing fast which provides TONS of opportunities for ambitious, forward thinking individuals. I love that I'm able to drive meaningful change that results in bottom line growth. The fast growth has presented business challenges that allow me to grow and learn at a steep curve.

    Cons

    Some of the old guard is resisting the fast growth and change...they simply want to collect a paycheck. I'd like to see Darigold trim some of the dead weight.

    Advice to Management

    Lets keep growing!

    I have been working at Darigold full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent and benefits are good but getting stripped away. Coworkers are mostly nice.

    Cons

    Seems every week groups of people are being fired, dont trust HR they act like employees are just in the way- wonder if they realize this is why they have jobs!!! Probably why they work so hard to fire people. Theres so much talk about not being bureaucratic but thats exactly what management is setting up. Makes hard to get your work done because we have to have pointless meetings where people dont know what theyre talking about.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look in the mirror and take out poor management, HR especially the elitist ones, and update the technology we're so behind.

    Pros

    It is a union job.

    Cons

    The company does nothing to prevent or stop harassment. They treat the victims as the problem. The company does not treat women fairly

    Advice to Management

    Stop sweeping things under the rug. Take the victims statements seriously

    Pros

    Good 401(k) and work life balance!

    Cons

    The worst onboarding/recruiting process I have ever been through. The recruiter called me at odd times and didn't even seem to be at the office until noon.
    Still has boys club mentality.
    Promotes employees into management due to tenure even though they are not qualified. This creates a poor working environment and high turnover in entry level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for employees to grow and terminate poor managers.
