    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.
