    Pros

    Super cool CEO highly focused on driving change through product innovation, technology, process. Smart people dedicated to doing what's right. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Tough times for ag. But these headwinds only create more urgency and more opportunities for people who want to drive change. If you want to effortlessly coast on "the good ol' days," you won't be happy here.

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

    Pros

    Good Campus , Cafe and Bank ATM.

    Cons

    1. Loose skills while you stay with company. 2. Poor IT Management : If you have genuine complain about your immediate manager practicing wrong work ethics and favoring certain employees ,chances are Directors will take the manager's side instead of helping you in your career growth. 3. Outsourced: They outsourced most of their work and hired IT employees from other countries instead of retraining old work force. On a good note they kept women employees to maintain men: women ratio. 4. False Commitments: When I joined in 2013 they promised they have a lateral movement among team to let you grow, instead they made excuses on short of budget to train people etc and at the same time directors made official international trips in Business Class. 5. They use 20 year old techs: They are still using old techs and being with this company for a long time would make you loose touch with current tech in IT. 6. IT Politics: lot of internal politics and previous CTO mishandling trust of employees. Many employees have quit due to this issue in past 2 years.
