Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) –  Tulare, CADecember 9, 2017

Pros
excellent wages and benefits

job and days off rotation, work 6 days in a row.

Slow Paced, Not Innovative
Demand Planner (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNDecember 1, 2017
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.
Pros
Work Life Balance
Cons
Lack of new ideas

A company with compassion
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNOctober 30, 2017
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.

Satellite office - black hole
Merchandising Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOOctober 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.
Pros
Pay, 401k, benefits
Cons
too much down time

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Shoreview, MNOctober 17, 2017
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.

Can't give much since I'm a temp and they don't include temps in any work picnics or anything else since we are not employees. Pretty laid back as pond long as you get your work done.

HR Manager - Summer Graduate Intern (Former Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNSeptember 22, 2017
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.
Pros
Job security, Work life balance, subsidized lunch on site.
Cons
old school, lack of diversity

An ag company that is completely modern
Communications Consultant (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNSeptember 17, 2017
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.
Pros
Modernizing workplace (no more cubicles; open work area), cafeteria is wonderful, casual environment

Marketing Intern- MBA (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNSeptember 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.
