    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a good company to work for, I have worked with them a total of about 12 years. They offer competitive wages and decent benefits, at least it was in Emporia KS. I figure it should be same.

    Cons

    No cons really, you just have to realise that it is a job and politics and craziness will come.

    Advice to Management

    I would just make sure you look at wages and benefits around and keep them close to others around. Emporia was pretty much a training ground.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time

    Pros

    A simplistic approach to policies that everyone abides by from top to bottom. Safety truly is the most important aspect of the company. Great benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    There are holdout "old school" managers and supervisors that don't believe they need to change even though the company is working towards the future. Work 6 days a week.

    Pros

    Good advancement potential. Strong integrity culture.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape. Company is trying to transition from old hard-nose way of managing that plagues the meet processing industry. People there have been conditioned that working 20 Saturdays per year is normal.

    Access to company store and discounts.
    Summer hours allow an early Friday.
    IT salary is competitive.

    Cons

    Decisions are made on a whim.
    Team members are treated as expendable.
    Managers are only about protecting themselves, not their direct reports.
    All team members are overworked and underappreciated.
