Growing company that embraces diversity
Corporate Operations Quality Manager (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMay 15, 2018
Good place to work. A lot of opportunity for growth. Home office is in Minneapolis so relocation may be required. Remote opportunities exist if you're willing to travel

Employees don’t take orders well, it’s a toxic cut throat environment
Manager (Former Employee) –  Davis, CAMay 11, 2018
I would advise everyone looking for a job in Davis to look for work elsewhere. The work is priority, not the employee. Backstabbing everywhere you turn. They don’t even allow you to be off Sundays. Guys are treated like work horses.
Pros
None
Cons
Toxic environment

lots of opportunities
Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNApril 17, 2018
feels great to work for a company that is helping provide food to a growing population. while it is a big company, it's still a co-op, so it has the vibe of a smaller organization. so many opportunities for employees who are hard-working and skilled.

Wouldn't recommend
Supervisor/Safety Captain (Current Employee) –  Madera, CAApril 4, 2018
This job is for people who lack the ability to strive for anything other than just a paycheck. Not intellectually stimulating and hours are long. If you like only being told what to do anot got going anywhere in life than Land o Lakes certainly will do.
Pros
Benefits and pays well
Cons
Long hours, inconvenient scheduling, lacks stimulation

Decent Work Environment
Intern (Former Employee) –  Orland, CAMarch 14, 2018
Typical day at work is stress filled. Co-workers made most days bearable. There seems to be a lack of communication in Management. Decent pay for the area that its located in, however not enough to cover the stress of the job.
Pros
Paid Meal Breaks
Cons
Not the "Family" company they claim to be

Pros

Terrible place to work
Receiver (Former Employee) –  Carlisle, PAMarch 3, 2018
Inconsistent management, terrible amounts of overtime, long days, only good thing about the place is the pay and benefits. No work home balance and they couldn't care less as to how much you work.

New Management in R&D terrible
Senior Process Engineer - Superspread Group (Former Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNMarch 1, 2018
All new management in R&D was terrible. They do not have any "game plan", only try to please their manager - this does not allow for a cohesive strategy ... though other than their personal career, I do not think they care.
Pros
Most people are great, new course management bad
Cons
R&D managers, VP clueless

Enjoyed my time here
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNFebruary 15, 2018
My manager and department was great to work with but if you don't have a degree or are an internal candidate its hard to move up. Recruiting doesn't value existing talent and often looks over qualified candidates. Benefits good, pay is competitive for similar positions.
Pros
Good benefits, flex hours, coworkers
Cons
FFG penny pinching on the important things, recruiting looks over exisiting talent

Good place to work
Associate Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNFebruary 4, 2018
Land O'Lakes is a good place to work. Most of the people are great to work with and I've had solid work experiences thus far. The culture can be a bit slow paced, especially when it comes to decision making.

Nice people
Labor Foreman / Truck & Rail receiver (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJanuary 30, 2018
Very fast pace mill. Unit mill with a lot of good and hard workers. Management is young and has room for improvement. The deadline margin is small for any errors. Couple hours of downtime and could be working weekends a lot.
Pros
The employees
Cons
Any downtime

Land O' Lakes
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Melrose, MNJanuary 30, 2018
It is a easy place to work scheduling is cool the benefits are great and the vacation you get is unreal. Down side is the management their is lacking any real direction and understanding of processes. They also have a high turn over rate in management which sure doesn't help.
