Tate & Lyle is very focused on finance/accounting and product management roles. The office is in a good location, but it's a very quiet, serious environment. It seems like employees are there to clock in and clock out.
Pros
Location, decent salaries
Cons
Dull office environment

Dreadful working environment. Pressure put on to bottom level staff at all times and passed down the chain of command. No empathy or care for employees. Clueless management.

Overall not a bad company. Management is typical, they squeeze every bit they can out of staff. Work life balance can be very poor. Swing shift in general is tough for a family. Benefits keep falling behind to comparable companies in area.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Benefits/swing shift

Tate and Lyle. Are the most easy and hard working group off people I’ve ever worked with. It does Exactly what it says on the tin and each working is not all himself or herself. If you wanted to switch shift it’s never been a problem.
Pros
Productive
Cons
Long hours

There’s always a chance to learn something new in order to advance. I enjoyed working for them. There’s not much else to say I had no complaints no disadvantages and no problems.

Very safety minded company. Often reminded by management that everyone has a stop work authority. And often rewarded for working safely. Always trying to find safest way.

Unfortunately not all engineers make great managers. They have made it a general rule to only promote engineers to management positions, and they don't have the skillset to properly manage people. Most of them have no experience managing people or management-specific education, and it shows. They pay is fair, but its a terrible 24/7/365 day/night swing shift, which gives no change at a normal family life.
Pros
Straight Salary
Cons
Poor management and HR department, swing shift

I would have stayed if It had been 4yrs sooner. My business and home life took priority over my new job there. But now I realize I should have stayed and made it work.

Have to be proactive to survive at this company. You need to use your work experience to your advantage. You could not always depend on someone to show you what to do.
