    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My department is very team-oriented and builds off each other's success and failures to improve further. They really have your back and care. The line of communication is always open with management. You are trusted to do your job and it gives you the motivation to consistently do it well. There is an underlying sense of competition among the team with our different routes, but the whole team reaps the benefits of each other's outcomes.

    Cons

    I am personally not a fan of the bio metric health insurance screenings, because I'd rather my health information be between my doctor and I.

    The hours put in can be excessive, but if that is what it takes to get the job done, that's what it takes.

    Advice to Management

    My personal advice to my specific management is to keep doing what we are doing. For higher up management, my advice is to review the compensation for our growers. Granted, it is performance-based but they could use a bump for maintenance. I am only saying that from conversations had with growers.
