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

Pros

Tyson Foods has great benefits, competitive pay and mostly competent management. The new CEO is growing the company and still seems to care about all the employees.

Cons

Some roles seem to lack a defined career path and some promotions seemed to be more about who you know rather than what you know.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A program was started for employees to submit their ideas for the company to save money. This program was a great idea and encourages employee to feel like they are heard and make a difference.

    I worked at Tyson Foods-Arkansas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay since Wal-Mart is located nearby, helps drive salaries up
    Quality of living in Northwest Arkansas is relatively cheap, get a lot for less!

    Cons

    Somewhat of a "good ole boy network" that makes you wonder how some individuals ever managed to achieve certain leadership levels. For instance, if they were to apply for their own position they would not be able to meet some of the minimum requirements. Certain groups say they like MBA's but very hard to get the organization to change its focus.
