I worked at Sysco full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Corporate office in Houston has made strides in creating work-life balance for employees
Office morale is high, for the most part
Very flexible, less stuffy environment, in recent years
Nice salary

Cons

Benefits have gotten more expensive with less coverage over the years
Certain managers are downright rude and more concerned with advancing their own career than the department they manage
Small raises/eliminated bonus potential for all non-management roles at corporate office
Some favoritism regarding which employees were able to work remote

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to value your employees, but benefit package and bonus structure must get better to retain talent

    I worked at Sysco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Food discounts and it ends right about there

    Cons

    As a low margin business, there is an extreme level of stress to control costs. However, the compensation structure was based on false perceptions of value rather than actual contribution (I was on the finance team and had access to payroll). There are too many legacy players and not enough room for advancement. The company is only competitive due to its size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Get rid of 50% of your excess management and see profits and morale double.
