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.

    I worked at Sysco full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
