GFS Cornerstone Values lost at the divisional level, but still a better company than Sysco and Us Food Service

Customer Development Specialist (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsPrivate family owned company which means no greedy stockholders to answer to. Great profit sharing/401K program. Excellent benefits, including tuition reimbursement, adoption assistance, employee discounts, etc. Christian company. Financial rewards for performance.

ConsCornerstone values and culture lost at the divisional level. Middle management are a bunch of "yes men" that don't support the people that report to them. Long hours, week nights and Sunday work. More concerned about expense management and head count than sales building. Individual departments are more concerned with personal success than the success of the entire team. Most of the strong leaders have left the company and have been replaced by puppets.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace "yes men" middle management with strong leaders. better align departmental goals so entire team can have success.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
