    I have been working at Tyson Foods-Arkansas full-time

    Pros

    Decent work-life balance, good culture, great people

    Cons

    Training is limited, lack leadership development programs, and some senior leaders are allowed to rule like tyrants - running off anyone who questions them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember who we were before we bought Hillshire. Who we were, what we did, and how we did it is the reason we were in a position financially to acquire Hillshire.
