    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are hard to beat. Innovation and technology are always at the forefront of change. Corporate support is actually pretty good.

    Cons

    Senior plant management does not want to spend any money on that innovation and technology, that might take some money from their MBO. The environment can be pretty clique-y, imagine a real-life version of Mean Girls.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do something with the exit interviews you ask employees to do and you will see why turn over is so high in certain departments. As the saying goes, "People don't leave jobs, they leave managers."

    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Private company without the wild financial games played each quarter that stock based companies have. -Pay is higher than most similar roles in other companies. -Ethical and Reputable Company. -Hard work is rewarded. -Profit share into private 401Ks is a great perk.

    Cons

    -Very inflexible around remote working or working from home. -Company culture is a bit outdated. Not always a bad thing, but due for some modernization.

    Advice to Management

    -To remain competitive in hiring and retaining, a serious improvement to work from home or remote working is critical.

    Pros

    Few good HR policies Small gym at denver office

    Cons

    Some of the worst team members, managers I have worked in my career. Each team in IT has one entitled guy especially the so called senior solution architects, who kind of try to control the show. All these sr. solution architects (mostly indian) are very political mindset driven, hardly technically capable. Almost all associate directors have old fashioned management style, focus more on saving their jobs, engage in... office politics, orthodox thinking. Only 20 % of people actually work here, and their accomplishment credit is taken by rest 80%. Eventually these hardworking 20% get fed up and leave and the rest 80% gets promoted. It's a cycle here.

    Advice to Management

    Kick out all the managers/associate directors and senior solution architects who only focus on saving their jobs, take credit of work done by others, not let other people in their team grow. Respect opinions of new employees, who bring in fresh perspective. HR should investigate all the past reasons of people leaving, especially in IT. They will get a answer.

    Pros

    Leprino is an extremely stable company. It is a true luxury to work for a company that has the capital to invest in growth of the business and its employees. Work hard, and it will be noticed, and you will always be on a growth path. The work is challenging, but positive team players thrive within Leprino culture. Conversely, negative people can have a hard time succeeding here.

    Cons

    Some systems and processes are outdated for a company this large, but the company continually uses resources to improve.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, retirement, profit sharing, bonus.

    Cons

    Too many working hours required. Horrible employee engagement. Leadership acts like they care what employees think but they do not. HR is not encouraged to help people or support them. They are also not informed. What this company cares about is money without realizing that they're losing so much money from turnover than they're supposedly saving by their ridiculous philosophies. Also some racism and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees decide engagement opportunities. Encourage supervisors and HR to work with the employees more so certain things like benefits, health screenings, events can be utilized more.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay check and benefits and that's it!

    Cons

    Lack of direction from management. No quality control, all that matters is lbs of product out the door. No ethical behavior. Lots of false documentation just to comply with audits. If you have a degree or any other experience is now used and/or valued. Managers are managers because they have been there since they were in high-school, not because they know how to manage. They burn employees down. Each... department just tries to cover they issues and they do not fix them. Management has unrealistic expectations on their capabilities. Middle management, the new supervisors who come from he outside last at the most 2 years, because they see no growth path. Unless you are a brown nose you will not get ahead. If managers do not like you or have an idea of you they will make a case to get you out of the door. No real commitment to continuous improvement. Maintenance and management do not fix anything, they are all just patch it to keep producing bad cheese.
