    Great people... for the most part

    Accounts Receivable (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    Pros-Great benefits and great people to work for if you're in the right department.
    -Truly understand that work is not life and try to accommodate as much as possible without impacting the entire department
    -Would have stayed if I wasn't changing to an entirely different field

    ConsI've heard some horror stories about other departments not having the best management or work environment. My department fortunately didn't have these problems.
    Not enough communication between departments often felt like departments were competing against each other within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at departments that don't have a high rate of turnover to see what they are doing right and encourage departments to work together.

    A great place to work.

    Territory Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsAs a Territory Manager it is important to get inside support. The staff is very solid and committed to assisting in any way possible. This includes upper management. On-going product training is exceptional. The overall culture is also outstanding even though the future of our division is in question.

    ConsThe upcoming merger with Sysco and the uncertainty that comes with it....is the big only issue I see.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote inside career advancement over outside hires a bit more.

    Still many opportunities in merger environment

    Director (Current Employee) Rosemont, IL

    ProsOpen, collaborative atmosphere. High visibility and accountability of executives. Focus on innovation in products and services. Great opportunity for advancement and adding resume-building responsibilities with pending merger.

    ConsSales organization is mostly comprised of order-takers, not true sales people. Only motivated by "What's in it for me?" i.e. commissions and spiffs. Poor support of divisional leadership for corporate initiatives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on directing resources toward talent recruiting and building bench-strength. Integration of the two companies will take years, so need to keep the company performance on the rails, and need to double-down on incentives to attract talent.

    Dynamic but sometimes too much change disrupts ability to service customers

    Demand Planner (Current Employee) Rosemont, IL

    ProsVery flexible in work scheduling. I work 6:30am-3pm so I can beat traffic and pick up my child from daycare before 5pm. We get 12 work from home days a year to use to take care of our personal business while still being productive.

    ConsThe process improvement team has good intentions in improving processes but excludes input from those who actually use the processes usually leading to only more work and more inefficiencies. Being bought out by Sysco and likely to relocate entire office to Houston, TX.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
