    I have been working at Land O'Lakes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My favorite things about this company are the people (down-to-earth, genuine, and hardworking) and the purpose. Feeding the world in innovative ways is an exciting journey to be a part of. There are huge growth opportunities here if you take advantage of them. The company also pays well and genuinely cares about employees. Work-life balance is a big deal to me and I feel like I have it working here.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any that stand out - this is a special place, especially compared to other comparable organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees and driving the success that you have been.

    I worked at Land O'Lakes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Land o’ Lakes are definitely the people and the benefits. The atmosphere was warm and supportive amongst the general employees. This is also a company that supports a healthy work life balance.

    Cons

    As a very large company, nothing happens fast or easily. Red tape and bureaucracy is the name of the game.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management was the least approachable or friendly of the staff. My advice to management would be to get out of your offices and get to know the general employees a bit.

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

    Pros

    Easily the best reason to work at Land O'Lakes is the people. Everyone here is nice and very down to earth. The pay and benefits is competitive and there is a great work life balance. I honestly believe that they care about their employees and try to do what is right for them. Also, there is a lot of opportunity for advancement in a culture that is fair and collaborative.

    Cons

    The agricultural industry is lacking in diversity and consequently so is the company. However, the company is taking proactive measures to hire and retain more diverse employees at all levels of the company. Also, the Twin Cities may not be an attractive location if you don't like snow, but there are field locations everywhere!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing, particularly with the current initiatives with attracting and retaining top and diverse talent. Great values and culture that starts and the top and is consistent throughout the entire company.
