    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 balance between upper management and mid-level management. Managers expect their supervisor team to work overtime and their days off yet they are only there 40 or less hours per week Monday through Friday. SEVERAL managers and supervisors who are poor people managers. Taking a class on managing people does little to nothing. This should be valued equally to technical knowledge when considering an applicant for these roles.

    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 towards hourly work force, then hourly forced overtime because of lack of trained employees leading to negative attitudes towards other hourly and supervisor. It's a overall negative environment for the past several years.

    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time

    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
