Former Employee - Marketing Associate in Albuquerque, NM
Former Employee - Marketing Associate in Albuquerque, NM

I worked at Sysco full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I was able to work independently out of the office and be on my own. Sysco has all the tools necessary for sales reps to be successful.

Cons

Working on Sundays and all the meetings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less meetings on Fridays. They put everybody behind and frustrate customers.

    Great small-office vibe at the largest food service distributor in the US

    I worked at Sysco full-time (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

    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Sysco full-time (less than an 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.
