    I have been working at Land O'Lakes full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome and the people are amazing. Land O’Lakes has several employees who have been with the company their entire careers. The schedule is flexible and employees can have a very nice work and life balance.

    Cons

    The pay is not great and I'm not a fan of corporate politics, but, as with any company, it exists.

    Advice to Management

    Land O’Lakes still has a lot of work to do when it comes to transparency.

    I have been working at Land O'Lakes (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are good to work with. Having Café at the corporate office is nice and cheaper than going to local restaurants.

    Cons

    Bad pay, stuck in old ways, technology is still 10 years behind the rest of the world. Takes forever to get anything approved.

    I worked at Land O'Lakes (More than a year)

    Pros

    The union allows for better pay, but that is the only good thing about working here.

    Cons

    I witnessed an employee getting harrassed and bullied almost on a daily basis for almost a year. He was a good person and a hard worker and didn't deserve this. They called him awful names and would yell Duh when he walked by. They tampered with his safety equipment. They made inappropriate comments to him. They intentionally hit him 3 times with a forklift. He begged management to help but they told him he was wasting their time and making a big deal about nothing. The man who hit him with the forklift admitted to a supervisor that he did it and nothing was done about it.
    Management held him against his will, and forced him to be confined in a room with his harrassers to "hash it out". Then was held against his will again and screamed at by management to stop reporting the harassment.

     He had to go on medical leave due to developing extreme anxiety. They fired him while on medical leave by email.
      The company promised to give partial pay while he was on medical leave but they never paid him. He told Land o lakes that he didn't have money for food and they sent the police to his house twice. He now has not had a paycheck in over 5 months, has no insurance, cant afford his anxiety medication. He started grinding his teeth so bad that most of his molars have broken. Land o Lakes has turned their back on this man who worked hard for them and management said that he doesn't belong at Land o Lakes because he is "different " from everyone else.
    I quit working for Land o Lakes because I refuse to work for any company who could be so heartless when they know that they were wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing. You have failed miserably at this.
