    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Tate & Lyle for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some good people working very hard wanting to make a difference. Focus and concern of safety for employees.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Too much work and not enough resources. Expectations are not realistic..you will burn out quickly. Teams dont communicate well. These are all reasons why New hires leave the company so quickly. I have seen a lot of people leave since I started. Moral has been low and Management is not addressing it. Bonus structure is not fair. Only managers or above receive it. You work extra hard for a minimal yearly increase.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes....employees are leaving...or looking to leave. Why are you not addressing the issues to retain your talent?

    I worked at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    depreciated corn milling assets - as long as customers are close to either midwest or a regional hub, very cost competitive.

    Cons

    Innovation is more about copying Ingredion. ADM and Cargill are also lower cost on commodity side.

    Advice to Management

    Do not tri-locate the business - get the leadership all together in Hoffman Estates. London, Decatur, Chicago all pull to run the commercial.
