        I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Fast-paced environment with lots to learn! Never a dull moment. Some (not all) very great managers and people!!

        Cons

        Benefits package is below average. Management also pays more for health insurance. PTO package is well below what it should be. Tend to pass over internal employees for promotion which can cause turmoil and discontent. Lots of people in management positions who know little to nothing about the process compared to employees who have been in hourly roles for years. Huge disconnect in the schedule and work/life...

        Advice to Management

        Promote from within. Consider improvements on PTO benefits to promote a better work/life balance. Happy employees tend to stay. Work on mending the disconnect between supervisors and managers and expectations of both. Hard to respect a manager who forces you to work your days off "for the team" when they leave early afternoons and have weekends off

        I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        The pay is average for manufacturing as it used to be above average, but average is better than below average. Benefits are average, holiday pay is good along with the several paid holidays.

        Cons

        Old style leadership that is results driven only meaning the employees are pretty much just a seniority number. The employee moral is negative because of lack of communication and they get frustrated with surprises. No work life balance is the common factor with hourly and supervisor employees. Supervisors forced to work days off with no compensation and leads to negative attitudes...

        Advice to Management

        Every work place has opportunities, but collaboration with hourly and supervisor level employees on finding solutions for the common issues instead of doing things the lazy way and just writing employees up and making them feel alone and demotivated. Invest in you management team on how to empower people or maybe place them in roles with no direct reports, but replace them with individuals with leadership and management...

        Pros

        Private company that has a family feel. Good benefits and long term job security. Leadership team that cares about the employees and makes you excited for the future of the company.

        Cons

        Work life balance can be tough, still stuck in the days when work is everything. Getter better but still room for improvement.

        Advice to Management

        On the right track. Employee engagement surveys are helping and are a good first step. Now implement the feedback and continue to improve.

        Pros

        Exposure to senior management, profit sharing, and bonuses are good.

        Cons

        Hard to move up in the department once you are past a certain level. Lots of micro management and the company operates like it's still stuck in the 70s with its leadership style. Vacation time is awful. Too many projects and everything is high priority. Work life balance is not good; always expected to respond quickly even at nights and no weekends

        Advice to Management

        Give more vacation time and show the people that work for you some appreciation every once in a while
