Money is great, no work life balance
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Westlake Village, CAJuly 17, 2017
Don't expect to take your PTO or be promoted within the company. You make great pay but are required to work long hours. Management expects nothing but perfection. Good luck with this company.
Pros
In house cafeteria, decent pay and benefits
Cons
Long hours, no bonuses, raises or promotions

Job was not what was represented
Treasury Specialist (Former Employee) –  Westlake Village, CAJuly 11, 2017
This was not the right job for me. The job that was promised on the job description was not what I actually ended up doing on a day to day basis. However, people were nice, lunchroom was great, workout facilities on site. Offices beautiful.

A good company to work for, although it lacks work life balance. Very demanding, people are great to work with here although it depends on the position and management.

System Analyst (Former Employee) –  Westlake, CAAugust 24, 2015
A typical day at work was to face the challenge of learning the business side of Dole Fresh fruit and implementing the best solution for the project. The hardest part of the job was that the company decided to go toward some other solution that won't last in long run. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting my future husband

Incredibly unorganized company

Created a food and fitness culture that supported healthier choices
Senior Vice President, Dole Nutrition Institute (Former Employee) –  Westlake Village, CASeptember 7, 2014
What many of us take for granted -- the growing,sourcing, packaging, and logistical transport of the food we buy at the grocery store --- is a complex process, and there are countless smart, dedicated people who make it happen, many of them work at Dole! It was a great experience to learn about this process, and imbue it with a vision of how fruit and vegetables support our health and reduce disease risk.
Pros
Beautiful headquarters, Strong chairman's vision, legacy heritage.
