    I have been working at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Good people to work with. People generally care about the company and doing what's best. - Very strong core business that consistently turns a profit, so job security is strong. - Lots of exposure to different processes and unit operations allows young engineers a well rounded experience and knowledge base. - A career progression ladder has been developed for engineers that shows paths in both technical and leadership paths.

    Cons

    - Concerned about where the company is heading. We keep selling off the business, but aren't adding anything of significance to replace. We recently chose to close a plant rather than lower our price to compete with Chinese. Recent SAP upgrade has resulted in more busy work for employees and less time to spend actually doing our jobs. - When unrealistic profits are not achieved, blame and pain is placed on the wrong groups to cut budgets and work harder.

    Advice to Management

    - Take a few risks. We can't continue to be this conservative and expect to remain competitive. - Submit realistic profit forecasts, so we can met expectations and not disappoint investors.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
