    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

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Financially sound. Deep pockets. Great technology. Pristine plants. Good quality products. Strong rank and file employees - hard working and dedicated. High market share. Many big customers. Amazing service level, drive and urgency.

    Cons

    Terrible culture. No appreciation for anyone below the ELT. No real training opportunities or career path outside a few functions. Totally top down. Employee surveys done but no real action. Most managers roll it out and do nothing with it. Just lip service. Owner is out of touch and runs around the basement screaming at people. Drives fear and intimidation which permeates the whole place. No one left on the ELT will stand up to him. Continually make excuses for his bad behavior and the "lesson". Totally insulting. Bullying behavior tolerated. Out of touch with customers and markets. Losing a lot of good people but no one cares. Leadership has hands tied. Culture will never improve until someone else takes over. Too bad the planned succession didn't work out. Pay attention to the half completed renovations. Jim didn't even want to finish them and give everyone a new modern environment.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Look in the mirror. Actually talk to people. Dig in deeper and really understand who is adding value.
