      Poor employee treatment

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They do offer good benefits.

      Cons

      You are only a laborer to them. No development opportunities. It was the most dehumanizing job I have worked at with managers' lack of respect. I moved to a similar role at a competitor, and am very pleased that they treat employees as assets rather than slave labor.

    5. 5.0

      Rewarding in many ways

      Jan 16, 2021 - Field Agronomist in Mankato, MN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexibility and autonomy for field employees is a huge plus. Benefits are great. 9% 401k match, Stock purchase program, great dental and vision. Health ins premium is low premium and higher deductible but includes HSA which company puts $$ into as well. Healthy family = Very low yearly costs. Communication with Management is decent and getting better all the time. Focus on the customer is at the center of the culture.

      Cons

      If you’re a field employee and not a self-starter, this isn’t the company for you.

      Pros

      A great organization with long term vision.

      Cons

      The larger an organization is the harder it is to align all levels of leadership for a clear needed path forward. This is true of any organization of this size and stature.
