    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 Management

    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...)

    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 Management

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

  10. Convicted Felons that continues to think they are above the law!!

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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