    Pros

    The company really is trying to move an entire industry forward by doing things in a different way. With new ideas. It's messy and weird at times but you don't get to do that many places.

    Cons

    Hey, if you want to change the world the apple cart is going to take a few hits. That's life. Change is hard sometimes.

    I worked at Land O'Lakes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Started there in 2014. Startup culture with high growth vision, generous benefits, talented colleagues, an inspiring place to work where most people were happy to be there and felt good about the future.

    Cons

    Culture shift after merger with United Suppliers. They pulled back on the benefits that made talented people want to work there. Restricted vehicle use, stopped issuing cell phones, no more social events, no more alcohol on work trips: things that made people like working there. And that was before the layoffs started. Bit by bit they decimated the sales force and the research groups, so it kinda made you wonder when you would get the call. People stopped being so excited about their jobs. Winfield really hurt themselves when they rejected a partnership with their biggest nationwide retail customer, and that customer ended up going a different direction totally and finding a new supplier. I'm not sure the present leadership is doing as well as Policinski.

    "Chasing every management trend in absence of winning strategy"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I have been working at Land O'Lakes

    Pros

    No shortage of good, motivated coworkers. HQ facilities are nice.

    Cons

    Decision-making is broken. Even relatively small decisions are pushed up two levels or more than they should be, meaning those closest to the business spend their time rationalizing and explaining the need for such and such decision, rather than being able to decide and execute and evaluate. In the absence of winning marketplace strategies, we’ve been chasing every management fad to its predictable dead end: zero-based budgeting, open environment office, looking to high-priced consultants for answers.
