    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, people really want to help you out. Amazing work in the local community. Good promotion prospects, leadership valued above higher degrees. Plenty of infrastructure investment. Can work your way from the bottom to the top. Senior leadership down to earth and care. Good connection between the Plants and Corporate. They say they want to hire to retire and they mean it. Excellent job stability.

    Cons

    Many jobs in the plant still manual.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Denver weather during summer season.

    Cons

    1] Office politics, taking credit of others work, employees belonging to specific race, country always speak in their native language here NOT english. Especially people from South India in IT team. 2] Raw and unpolished people lacking in management skills are in management role here. 3] Expect employees to work late. 4] No clear and transparent career growth. Politics rides here higher than talent. 5] Managers and couple associate directors pride here in saying - We handle problems ourselves and not let HR get involved or not let HR know about problems. These are the same managers who I have mentioned in point 2.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are hard to beat. Innovation and technology are always at the forefront of change. Corporate support is actually pretty good.

    Cons

    Senior plant management does not want to spend any money on that innovation and technology, that might take some money from their MBO. The environment can be pretty clique-y, imagine a real-life version of Mean Girls.

    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Private company without the wild financial games played each quarter that stock based companies have. -Pay is higher than most similar roles in other companies. -Ethical and Reputable Company. -Hard work is rewarded. -Profit share into private 401Ks is a great perk.

    Cons

    -Very inflexible around remote working or working from home. -Company culture is a bit outdated. Not always a bad thing, but due for some modernization.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Few good HR policies Small gym at denver office

    Cons

    Some of the worst team members, managers I have worked in my career. Each team in IT has one entitled guy especially the so called senior solution architects, who kind of try to control the show. All these sr. solution architects (mostly indian) are very political mindset driven, hardly technically capable. Almost all associate directors have old fashioned management style, focus more on saving their jobs, engage in office politics, orthodox thinking. Only 20 % of people actually work here, and their accomplishment credit is taken by rest 80%. Eventually these hardworking 20% get fed up and leave and the rest 80% gets promoted. It's a cycle here.

    Pros

    Leprino is an extremely stable company. It is a true luxury to work for a company that has the capital to invest in growth of the business and its employees. Work hard, and it will be noticed, and you will always be on a growth path. The work is challenging, but positive team players thrive within Leprino culture. Conversely, negative people can have a hard time succeeding here.

    Cons

    Some systems and processes are outdated for a company this large, but the company continually uses resources to improve.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, retirement, profit sharing, bonus.

    Cons

    Too many working hours required. Horrible employee engagement. Leadership acts like they care what employees think but they do not. HR is not encouraged to help people or support them. They are also not informed. What this company cares about is money without realizing that they're losing so much money from turnover than they're supposedly saving by their ridiculous philosophies. Also some racism and favoritism.
