    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay and benefits. Good product.

    Cons

    Old school ways, lack of corporate structure. Zero cross-functionality from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Old school management, ideas, processes. Need to be progressive to stay relevant. Could work smarter and less hard, would increase home/work life balance. Should phase out "good ole' boys club" and ring in performance based, continuous improvement to the disorganization of the organization.

    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - the values, longevity, and security of the way companies were a long time ago
    - Leprino is about a decade ahead of our closest competitors when it comes to technology and innovation

    Cons

    - Leprino is a lean company, we don't have a lot of overlap with job functions/positions - so you will actually work. Too many people who don't belong in this type of corporate environment are disruptive with their unrealistic expectations and subsequent short tenures. If you know you will find better success in your typical "Denver app startup, jeans only, and bring your cat to work" company getting paid $35k a year with a business card that says "Vice President of Industry Disruption" - well then go do that instead. Leave Leprino to the grown ups.

    Pros

    Leprino Foods has a great history and set of ethics. It's a family-owned company and you are made to feel like family here. The benefits are great, including many wellness incentives, and you really get a feel for each part of the business.

    There is a lot of internal movement, which shows that the company prides itself on its associates and helping them land the career they want.

    The company is heavily involved in the communities of where their HQ and plants reside.

    Cons

    You can't wear jeans on Friday.
