    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.

    Employees are motivated, capable and caring. There's a plan and a reason to work towards achieving it.

    It's still an older culture (though that's rapidly changing) that sometimes struggles with adopting new methods and processes.

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

    Pros

    Profit sharing, competitive salary & bonus

    Cons

    Satellite office seems to be ignored from corporate level. On-boarding took 2 weeks to get all computer programs and essential tools to do the job. I.T. department is too compartmentalized and doesn't resolve issues very timely. No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaged with your subordinates.

    Truly value each and every employee as a person and integral part of the business.

    Corporate can be a better experience than the manufacturing plants for some people and provides a different culture, but you're experience depends on your preferences.

    I worked at Land O'Lakes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule in some areas.
    Benefits for individual and family
    Pay is competitive
    Profit Sharing at the end of each year

    Cons

    No career path or advancement opportunities
    Management only cares about their "favorites"
    Old Boys Club
    Mediocre work is acceptable
    No standardized process, everyone does it different, hard to work cross-functionally
    Too top heavy in upper management
    IT/PMO what a joke

    Advice to Management

    Look at who you have in charge. Let voices be heard, good people with good ideas are retaliated against. Only those that follow the leader do well, those that strike out to lead end up in front of a firing squad.
