Former Employee - Account Executive

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

Pros

Benefits are fairly good. Self insured so health insurance is reasonable.

Cons

Upper management at both the OpCo and Corp level terribly out of touch. More and more work with fewer workers. All depts are dangerously low in staff members. Impossible to offer good service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember where Sysco came from and the customer service part of Service and Systems Company. Stop taking your good employees for granted and make work load equitable.

    Pros

    Sysco has very high standards for their product. Working for Sysco, you can be proud of the products the company sells. They truly care about quality.

    Cons

    Middle management is very control happy on the "underlings". Big company, you are a number, not a name.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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