    I worked at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great Product Line, still some good people trying to hang on unfortunately not for long.

    Cons

    Aggressive and belittling senior management. Impossible to meet goals or expectations. Intimidation tactics continually exercised. Don't be sold a bill of goods when the management lists a great place to work on this website. If you are considering taking a job at this company think again. Get your bonus agreements in writing! They talk about the culture and values however do not act on them. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Someone on the Board of Shareholders had better take a good look at who they have employed to run their business.

    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.
