Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) – Tulare, CA – December 9, 2017
Great union benefits , great retirement opportunity to work with people who have been here for 30+ years. Working with a perishable product, the job could be very demanding at times, that makes the time go fast.

Full of baby boomers stuck in their old ways. Poor management, with politics being the only way to advance or move to a different position. Upper management is concerning due to lack of knowledge and people skills.

A company that holds true to it's cooperative roots offering the best of both worlds (NGO and private company). People are empathetic and very professional. As a billion dollar company, it is still run by its members.
Merchandising Coordinator (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 23, 2017
Understanding that the Ag industry is up and down - there seems to be an unusual amount of downtime here. The I.T. department is too compartmentalized to get anything done efficiently. The entire company as a whole is about a decade behind in technology. Response time for I.T. or H.R. related questions is VERY slow.
As a project manager on the continuous improvement team I was fortunate enough to be a part of the lean six sigma program implementation at Land O'Lakes. This gave me much needed experience and helped me excel at managing and completing projects. The management is great and really push you to reach for your goals.

LOL is a decent company but things are slow because of the old world mentality. It's also not very diverse, mostly men in management roles. They need to evolve with the times to continue to grow and to attract top talent. I worked at LOL temporarily therefore, did not get full time benefits otherwise, they have great benefits and great people to work with.
Job security, Work life balance, subsidized lunch on site.

Land O'Lakes is a thoroughly interesting company. I never thought I would in the agriculture business, but I'm glad I landed here. They brand themselves as "farm-to-fork," and it's a true assessment of their business. It's not just butter. This company is food production from beginning to end. It includes seed (WinField United), feed (Purina Animal Nutrition), dairy (butter, spreads), and a global nonprofit. It's a Fortune 500 company that feels like a small company.
Modernizing workplace (no more cubicles; open work area), cafeteria is wonderful, casual environment
Marketing Intern- MBA (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – September 5, 2017
A decent company that needs to move faster and build a better office to attract top talent. Hours are great and summer fridays are a nice touch. But old world mentality made it a difficult workplace for me.
