company perks, stock options - pros cons - alright 401k
The company benefits are okay and pretty much standard. Nothing significant that makes them stand our from their competitors.
I just started working at Tyson for a few month, so I have no opinion on the benefits package.
Annual increase of 2% (average) is not in line wtih the amount of work and risk that is involved with the job.
Generic benefits, not really good or bad.
It took 3 months for me to get insurance for my family after initial hire, HR tried to tell me this was Industry standard, which is far from true. Also, you don't get vacation right away, you have to earn 1 week after being there for 6 months. These are important things to know for people that want to work at Tyson. Honestly, there are no real company perks, no incentives or discounts that the open public doesn't already have. The Tyson store in Springdale can be accessed by anyone.
They had good health coverage, they pay really good for starting out on anything,
The healthcare plan is really good. Plus they have several plan options for you to choose from. They are generous with cash bonuses and stock options (for those who qualify) when the company has had a good year. If you have questions or need help with any of your benefits, they have a phone number where you can talk to a knowledgable human being who will help you. That's rare these days.
ESP is very generous after 1yr , but vacation and parental leave benefits are noncompetitive.
401k is good. you'll get 1 week vacation after 1 year of date of hire. Not much perks. insurance is not so good compared to before.
