    Pros

    Tyson's core values are a big part of why the working environment is very friendly and inviting. Tyson's competitive salary rates and affordable health benefits are also a plus especially in these tough economic times. The actual work is challenging but not hard, engaging but not stressful. Ergonomically Tyson strives to make sure no Team member's job has a negative effect on their body. Safety is always at the forefront.

    Cons

    No cons come to mind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time getting to know the team members personally. Team members feel uncomfortable and less confident working for people that seem culturally or socially distant.
