    I have been working at Land O'Lakes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible with working from home, opportunity for advancement, great retirement benefits, great boss

    Cons

    Flexible work space in theory is a great idea, but doesn't lend to building relationships with people that sit around you. People seem to have tunnel vision and don't even acknowledge your presence when you arrive, or leave - no hellos, no goodbyes. Quintessential Minnesota nice.

    I worked at Land O'Lakes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Land O Lakes has good people working for them. Not only at the corporate level-but also at the outside sales teams. The people in the field and the people in the office generally work pretty well together. Overall a pretty team oriented place with good people.

    Cons

    Like any organization, you get some bad apples, sales reps that wont work with certain divisions and people that use politics against other divisions. Land O Lakes likes to focus on how much money they save, rather than business development activities that will make the company money. All in all, they love to talk about career advancement, but actually do not like to do this. Once you get put in a category at Land...

    I worked at Land O'Lakes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay. New facility. Annual review and bonuses.

    Cons

    I would not suggest Land O'Lakes for anyone looking for a career in IT. They've contracted with companies in India to do as much of their IT work as possible. There is no job security and no loyalty. After working there several years, myself and many other employees were laid off, so that people in India could do our jobs for less.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, hourly employees are a good group of people

    Cons

    Management rotates through the office with great regularity as this is a stepping stone to bigger and better things for them. That being said, the rules all change everytime someone new comes in and wants to run things their way compared to the ways that have been effective. Lots of unneeded paperwork that are created because someone needed to do something to prove their job was needed. There is a noticeable gap between...

    Advice to Management

    Finally find people who will stay around and actually do something to improve the plant, not just their career.
