I have been working at Sysco full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great pay when business is good, good people to work with. Trips, it is challenging and satisfying 75% of the time.

Cons

It is not a job but a lifestyle. On call 24/7 When business drops off our somebody else looses an account of your, tough luck, go get another account. Often that would not be bad, but Sysco adds new marketing associates, more than are needed in an area, and you are in competition with them and existing associates. When they quit you pick up some of their accounts, maybe. Depends on the District Manager and the more experienced guys get 80% of the accounts. So consequently a few get funneled the business. If you can survive it can be good.

Advice to Management

The sales management is horrible. I say this as a former sales manager at another Fortune 500 company. He is not very sharp.
