Tate & Lyle Overview

Procurement Manager (Current Employee)
Decatur, IL

I have been working at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 3 years

ProsStable company now that right-sizing and movement of resources from Decatur to Poland has been completed.

ConsDecatue is depressing place to work, although cost of living is very very attractive. I would call it a cultural wasteland as the nearest hot spot of intelligencia is 40 miles away in Springfield, Champaign or Bloomington.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrue-up human resource related benefits between the UK and US. There is a strong belief here in the US that UK employees are better compensated and have much better PTO policies and we in the US have to pick up the slack.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

People magically won't know how they can help… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

E/I Technician (Former Employee)
Loudon, TN

I worked at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Steady and stable employment. Plenty of overtime. Opportunities for advancement. Gym on premises. Company perks...discount tickets for… Cons: Must put the company first and family second! Ridiculous rules, but not really different than any other industrial plant. Awkward shift schedule. Have… Advice to Senior Management: Do more than pay lip service to employees about concern… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
