    I worked at Tyson Foods

    Pros

    The only perk for Management Support was being allowed to park close to the building.

    Cons

    Misrepresented hours, pay, and ability to advance. Always short-handed. Unsanitary office conditions. Unsecure parking facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't misrepresent the job, the pay or the company's values. Get rid of the Christmas food coupons and give your employees at least a $50.00 gift card. Stop giving free food to upper management! (When a trailer 'accidentally' delivers steaks...)

    I worked at Tyson Foods

    Pros

    Very interesting place to work and process to be a part of. Everyone has heard of Tyson Foods. The pay is reasonable and benefits are fine.

    Cons

    Not much in regards to cons. The workforce at the production plants is huge too so you don't feel like your going to make a big difference for the company. But for a place that provides a steady paycheck and steady pay I liked it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Production numbers are everything but give the people and equipment reasonable time to get the job done.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very few unless you are one of the good old boys.

    Cons

    Convicted of numerous felonies for Environmental issues and just continues to dump toxic substances into the water supply. Numerous states including Missouri and Oklahoma are prosecuting them as I write this. Google Tyson and bribery of USDA inspectors. They just plead guilty and paid 4.5 million in fines, yet allowed Greg Huett, the executive overseeing the payments, to retire with full company benefits including use of the corporate jet, golf club membership and millions of dollars in payoffs to keep his mouth shut.. There are numerous other instances. The Shelbyville, Tennessee facility is as corrupt as any. Numbers lie and the people who manipulate them LIE!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit lying to the consumer and to the government contractors that buy and distribute a product that is not produced as advertised. Quit trying to convince us that our Core Values are paramount to our business when your demonstrated and well documented criminal acts are conducted behind closed doors by your henchmen on a daily basis.

    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Sometimes you have good people to be around. Always busy so you can make a good living

    Cons

    As management you have a target on your back, set by your team members and your colleagues. No life outside of work because of long hours and weekend work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter what I say they won't change. I'd suggest not to work for Tyson period

    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Northwest Arkansas is a great area to live.

    Cons

    The standards for employment, development and communication are too new too recommend this as a career company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture turn around championed by CEO Donnie Smith is not championed by his growing leadership team .The majority of Senior and middle managers are typically Arkansas born, Tyson experienced only and locally educated. Do not expect consistency in career path this decade .

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. Very engaging, family friendly and plenty of room for growth.

    Cons

    Upper management is very friendly, but can tend to forget others, such as direct reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget those under you! Sometimes I see upper management not giving other reports the credit they deserve, or attention they need for their growth.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hands on training for me was easy to learn in this way, I have had various supervisors and most of them were great. I lost my mom a few years back and they were wonderful giving me the time off I needed.

    Cons

    The main problem I have is that to me they have an unfair pay rate..I make as much hourly as people that have been there for 20 years and people that have been there just a few years make almost as much as I do..I think they should take loyalty in to account and pay extra for the people that actually stick with them...another major problem is all the repetitive movements after awhile effects your hands, shoulders and other various parts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the loyal people that stick with the company, tell people when they do a good job, don't just tell them when they are doing wrong.
