Land O'Lakes butter and more
Sr. Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNNovember 8, 2018
Land O'Lakes has a new open work environment promoting collaborative work between employees and teams. Discounts on butter and other Land O'Lakes products is a great bonus.

Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Statesville, NCOctober 30, 2018
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, WIOctober 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.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Hours

The ship is sinking
Manager (Current Employee) –  IdahoSeptember 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.
Pros
Its a job
Cons
They are no longer investing in their future

This is one of the best places I worked for.
Sr QA Analyst/Automation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNSeptember 15, 2018
Being a Sr. QA Analyst this company has the best work environment I have ever worked. The QA manager was very supportive in taking the ideas and plans for the project and the QA analyst and automation engineers were very manageable and supportive when meeting the deadline of any project.

Poor management. Very cut throat and the management lacks leadership and organizational behavior. Ended my temp services after having death in the family. Lack of compassion. Certain managers tend to pick on employees.

HR Manager (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNSeptember 12, 2018
Land O'Lakes mission is great, there are a lot of people working toward the good of all farmers.

Managers are in need of a lot of management training. They are moving to open work enviorment and many managers do not know how to manage a team that way.

Factory Worker (Former Employee) –  Faribault, MNSeptember 11, 2018
This review is for a factory job in a factory that no longer exists. Land O'Lakes had a bunch of tiny factories all over the place, and had to consolidate due to pressure from market forces

Wonderful place to work! Very people-friendly. Good work/life balance
Marketer (Former Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNSeptember 3, 2018
Land O'Lakes is a very happy place to work. The farmer-owned aspect has much to do with that. I had the privilege of meeting the farmer-owners and it was an absolute highlight of my time there. LOL takes good of its people on a daily basis and offers flexible work options to help you preserve work/life balance. It's a very values-driven company dedicated to "Feeding Human Progress". Their market leadership in B2B food/agriculture is where the company is strongest. They struggle a little with marketing fundamentals in retail and innovation, which is related to the reason I left the company. (I got recruited by another company that was stronger in these areas of interest to me, though leaving was hard because I really loved working at Land O'Lakes and was very happy). They are heavily invested in overly-commoditized products, which makes the boom and bust business cycles quite volatile. For marketers, LOL is the most advantageous place to work if you're looking for job security and work/life balance over rapid advancement/highly challenging work. I would go back to work there if the right opportunity presented itself, and I recommend it highly to others.
Pros
Work/life balance, people-friendly culture, competitive starting salary, good benefits. Strong B2B food/agriculture businesses
Cons
A little under-developed in retail and innovation, diversified business model is cool but doesn't always seem to make logical sense

Different experience as a contractor
Information Technology Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Arden Hills, MNAugust 28, 2018
Working for Land O'Lakes corporate as a contractor, you obviously do not get the full benefits of being a full timer. It can sometimes get as bad as employees treating you differently just because the realized you're a contractor.

All in all a good place to work. Land O'Lakes really cares about their commitment to the community and their purpose (Feeding Human Progress). Good place but not what it used to be!
