    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 3 years

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    Some systems and processes are outdated for a company this large, but the company continually uses resources to improve.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

      Pros

      Stable job for the incompetent and lazy. If you are a brownie hound you have a decent chance for advancement. They will not fire you if you are unable to do your job. It is easier to make someone else work harder and do others work than to hold someone accountable for not performing. If you are unable to do your job and underperform chances are you will be promoted to the corporate level. It is quite often that managers...

      Cons

      There are a ton of recordable accidents. If you are working maintenance you will be forced to work of high voltage but they will not issue proper ppe. If you have another job opportunity, take it. It is not worth working for a place that does not respect you and makes you work a garbage schedule. Only take a job here if you literally have no other options. Even then I would hesitate in taking a job here.

      Advice to Management

      Clean house. There are too many terrible managers that do not know their jobs. Moral is very low, no one wants to work in the Greeley plant. Literally anyone you talk to is looking for work elsewhere.

      Pros

      -Pay well -Good people -Culture is great -CEO is competent and knowledgeable making the company better. -Good benefits

      Cons

      -Refuses to develop into a modern company - still stuck in the 1950s mindset - No promotional opportunities -Middle management does not know how to do their jobs - lazy and unwilling to help -Have to be okay with the hierarchy - people who are there longer get much better benefits -No perks -Extremely shady practices in corporate office -Bad communication - No transparency whats-so-ever

      Advice to Management

      Help your subordinates grow and develop. Allow them to learn things outside of the job description without reprimanding them. Work-life balance is a must. Let your people go home! Be more transparent about the problems within the company. Increase the communication and listen to the bottom of the bottom, sometimes they do have ideas.
