    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time

    Pros

    I left Big 4 Public Accounting to take this position, and I can honestly say that even my "bad days" here are better than my good days were in public. I have never once regretted my decision to join this company. While there are the obvious benefits of my
    career switch (better hours, better pay, etc.), there were also some unexpected pros I would like to touch on:
    1. If you hate being micromanaged, this is the place for you! Never once have I felt like someone was looking over my shoulder instructing me every step of the way. Even during my first few months here, I noticed that my managers would give me the right balance of coaching and space/freedom to do things on my own.
    2. You cannot beat the culture. Everyone (and I mean everyone) treats everybody with kindness and respect. Everyone truly wants each other to succeed at the company - if individuals succeed then the company succeeds, and if the company succeeds then the employees will ultimately succeed. This mindset and culture is highly motivating and productive.
    3. The senior leadership group is approachable, honest, and transparent. This is not something I can say about any other "higher-ups" I have crossed paths with. They make an effort to get to know each any every person at the company, and they do it because they actually care about their people
    4. The company is extremely flexible and supports both my professional and personal goals.
    5. A ton of opportunities to grow, move into different departments, and broaden your understanding of the company. The company is also great at promoting internally.
    6. Great benefits!
    7. I have never dreaded going to work
    8. We always have cheese and pizza taste testings going on
    9. While this company is huge, it still maintains that family-feel

    There are so many more great things about this company and the tone that the leadership group sets, and I highly recommend Leprino Foods as your next employer.

    Cons

    Parts of the office are a bit out-dated

    Pros

    jim leprino voted for trump. is that a pro? you get a parking spot with your name on it if you drink the cool-aid. you might as well go work for the wal-mart family - at least they will pay your value.

    Cons

    same environment as uber or fox news. if you want to be subjected to discrimination or inappropriate sexual behavior this is your next stop. check the pending lawsuits - all public knowledge. the amount of incompetency in the company is staggering. read the forbes article that was released too. it will tell you all you need to know about these bullies.

    Advice to Management

    its not 1950 anymore. grow up and open your eyes to all the hard working people around you. the fact that you got microsoft office last year (2016) will give you more insight to the ELT taking everything and sharing nothing. also, competitive price is not a core value - you talk family values but you have no morals yourself. still reading? open up your balance sheet and spend money on your website - its trash - but none of this will matter anyway. nothing will change until jim passes and leaves the monopoly to his family. it could get worse then. apply today to find out.
