    I worked at US Foods as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people-oriented culture and great corporate values. People I've worked with are all super nice. It's more than a workplace but a big family to me.

    Cons

    The upcoming merger with Sysco may bring about quite a lot of uncertainties. Many people chose to leave the company before anything unexpected could happen to them.

    I worked at US Foods full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Numbers don't lie. They call it work for a reason. Lots of education on products.

    Cons

    Lots of change in Corporate structure with more drastic change coming shortly. Always trying to reinvent the wheel which wasn't broken till upper mgt. said so. Again, numbers don't lie!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Luck and God Bless the people tossed away after years of undying loyalty. You should think more of them than your "golden parachute". It's obsene what you all take from the sweat of employees backs! Thank Goodness for Division Presidents to buffer employees from the top.

    Pros

    Trend setter with new technologies and products. Lots of support from sales specialists. Most sales employees are 10plus years with company which speaks a lot. Good communication from senior management.

    Cons

    Too much administrative work. Ordering system is very dated. Tedious to pull sales data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep things simple. Update order entry platform. Reduce administrative work and let sales go do their job and add new customers and grow business.

    Pros

    As in any aspect of life, but especially sales, you have to play to win. For those that care to get out of the house, get out of the car and actually walk into a foodservice entity, there is money to be made. Work / life balance is great as long as you are organized and intentional in your actions. Sure, initiatives are crammed down our throats daily, but it's sales...play the numbers. There is a wide gap between the earners and the complainers for an obvious reason. Versus our competitors, I have to truly believe that we are a cut above the rest in quality, performance and morality.

    Cons

    Obviously, selling out to Sysco is heart breaking. I had every hope of retiring from USF one day, albeit 20-30 years away.
    Transportation/routing has been a severe set back in customer relations, but so goes the broad line industry.
    Procurement could use significant directional aid as out of stocks are rampant and embarrassingly damaging to the sales force for the better part of the last 12 months.
