    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time

    Pros

    Most people have a great attitude, good corporate culture

    Cons

    IT culture very behind the times, not a lot of opportunities for promotion and growth

    Advice to Management

    It seems that truly motivated employees have few options but to leave to another company and then return down the road to a higher position. No one moves past Senior level developer.
