I have been working at Sysco full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good benefits, excellent 401K, paid time off, overall a good operating system that works well in delivering product to the end user.
Room to advance and transfer allover the country.
Good business model concept to develop the companies sales staff into a true food service business .

Cons

Constant corporate changes that disrupt the sales part of the their business model, low morale, compensation has been adjusted 3 times in the last 18 months that has resulted in lower commissions, high turnover in sales staff,
Poor leadership in the location that I am currently employed at...3 VP of sales in the last 2 yrs, 5 diff DSM's in the last 6 months,
Last Fortune 100 company to invest in a Sales Management Software "SalesForce.com"
Salesforce.com is a good tool...the company needs to invest in the showing it's value to the Sales staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

"listening" is a skill that Sysco sales staff is required to utilize when working w/ their customers prospective customers... Sales Managers & Corporate Leaders theoretically are equally responsible to show that they are implementing sales policy adjustments based upon info yielded from Surveys. Surveys results should be made public & the sales staff should be allowed to see what is beng acted upon to show advancement on any current issues.

    I worked at Sysco as an intern

    Pros

    long time and detailed trainnings; a plenty of networking opportunites with management even executives. The leadership valued it and require each intern to present their accomplishments at the end.

    Cons

    much lower payment than average for a graduate. Too much lesure time in the final 3 weeks before the final presentation. The company cut the budget this year and does not sponsor H1B anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
