    Benefits are great, location was close, a lot of overtime

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

    Pros

    Great company and leadership with excellent benefits.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons, I loved it there...

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the people who were reorganized out of the company a few years back. With all the other companies your buying up, there's got to be some opportunity.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This has been a very rewarding position and I have gained a lot of knowledge in my current role. I love what Tyson delivers as a product and continue to feed my family the products that are produced in our very own plant.

    Cons

    I work lots of extra hours. If the job isn't finished I don't leave.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to upper management I suppose would be to sometimes offer to help out. Not all the time, but it does help out the morale sometimes when your supervisors see you actually stand by them and do the work. So they can see that it's not beneath you to get your hands dirty sometimes.
