Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Arden Hills, MN – December 27, 2018
Even though the diversity and inclusion seems to be over funded, Land O Lakes is a nice place to work. The pay and benefits competes with other companies in the area, and they are willing to consider requests for special accommodations.
Senior Systems Technician 2 (Current Employee) – Arden Hills, MN – December 27, 2018
Great company to work for, with the exception of this last year, they did a lot of out sourcing. A little behind the times but it was done. Over the years it has been a decent company to work for, I have no regrets coming here. they have good benefits, and a decent 401K plan. Especially as you get older. They seem to be putting a lot of money into the buildings and work environment for their employees.
National Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 24, 2018
I enjoyed working for LandOLakes for about 36 years and was proud to be apart of the organization , I held several positions from sales to management and training and traveling across the United States interacting with farmers and fertilizer dealers try to increase crop yields with current products and new ideas to increase yield and quality
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Melrose, MN – December 4, 2018
Expectation is that you work 10 plus hours a day. I learned that one bad facility does not define the company as a whole. The hardest part of the job was management. I went through 2 plant managers, 4 operation managers and constant turn over of fellow supervisors. The best part of the job was the shift schedule and hourly employees.
Great coworkers, but very competitive, rather than cooperative business plan
Systems Modeler (Current Employee) – Gray Summit, MO – November 9, 2018
I loved my teammates and really enjoyed the work with them. I struggled with the species team's at Purina because they are very competitive and do not cooperate for the benefit of the company. Instead, they are very concerned with promoting their own image. This made for a lot of disconnected teams, that didn't have shared benefits/learnings, which resulted in a huge loss of potential.
Great benefits/pay, flexible work hours, great teammates
This was a great place to work once upon a time. Things are changing and the changes no longer include employee morale. The changes we were told by management are for the betterment of the company, not the betterment of the employees. Now the employees are jumping ship for the betterment of themselves.

Assistant Coordinator (Current Employee) – Kiel, WI – October 24, 2018
There is an extreme divide between what the workers want and want management wants workers to do. This is one of the main reasons it is very hard for the company to retain employees. This is even with great pay and benefits. Also, if you are new it is almost a given that you will be working every weekend and holiday.
Manager (Current Employee) – Idaho – September 26, 2018
They are firing good talent and it will not be long before they can no longer maintain or attract good talent. Since their Winfield group merged with United suppliers the decisions went from calculated to reactive. It feels like an investment bank took over. I used to reccomend this company to friends. Now I do not wish this experiance upon my most hated enemies. Managers literally tell you now that they cannot guarantee your job tomorrow. That is no way to go to work. They used to pride themselves on their talent development. They used to tell people that they would develop them just in case they had to make difficult employee decisions that they could retain the good talent. This is no longer the case. The ship is sinking. Do not get on.
