    I worked at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Face pace, engineering base, lean. You are on your own success.

    Cons

    -limited career progression. -work life super unbalance. -too many directors, VP, SVP, GM I have ever seen in any others company in this industry especially at NA head office. Too many thinkers that doers to drive results. Might be reasons we always one step behind competitors. -lots of changes in Sr. leaderships. Most changes happen every 2-3 years.

    I have been working at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, team based management, benefit are fair

    Cons

    Hours are horrible (fast rotation so 3 night shifts, 3 days off, and then 3 day shifts then 3 days off and 3 night shifts etc), makes it hard for a life outside of work, work weekends and holidays, team base management which can be good and bad depending on your team, people misuse time off causing you to work a lot of overtime

    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.

    Pros

    T&L has a higher starting wage than most production facilities in the area. There is room for advancement of you push yourself hard enough.

    Cons

    The rotating swing shift is a huge downside. This type of scheduling is proven detrimental to workers not only physically, but mentally and emotionally.
