    Pros

    Honestly try to adhere to their stated values, most teams part of positive environment, most managers genuinely care about their employees.

    Cons

    Lately, the upper management has moved toward Chicago / Hillshire Farm culture and less personal and friendly culture that made Tyson stand out as a positive place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the culture and values that make this such a great place to work.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is ok! They have an amazing attendance policy! Most of the supervisors are very friendly and helpful. We do our best to ensure the safety of all team members. And try to ensure that the quality of our product is the best it can be.

    Cons

    There tends to be a huge lack of communication between upper management and line leads. As well as with the team members as to what is going on for the day. There is also a shortage of people on the lines.

    Advice to Management

    When you have someone willing and able to learn more, teach them! Also, don't let your authority go to your head. Not everyone is ignorant just bc they aren't in the position you are. Listen to ideas and suggestions and try to incorporate them into the work area. Team members are on the lines daily and they are seeing and learning more than you realize. Also, stop playing favorites amongst the staff.
