Company is sales driven, so Admin work is not appreciated

I have been working at Sysco (more than 10 years)

Pros

Your experience will depend on the department. I worked with great guys and a Supervisor who supported me and tried to promote me within the company. The guys in the department were very professional and most of the company was the same way.

Cons

Your experience with Sysco will depend entirely on what department you are in. Accounting is the pits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please realize support personnel are also a value to the company.

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

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits and training. There are some very experienced people who can teach new employees a lot about the food business.

    Cons

    This company is very "flavor of the week" and will change focus and direction on a dime. Shareholders are the prime focus to the detriment of employees. Employees are paying the price for failed initiatives and the company has made many cuts that make the job extremely difficult. Unqualified "yes men" who blame their employees for their own failures are promoted to the detriment of the company. Morale is in the basement at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and hold middle managers accountable.

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Create your own schedule. Not micromanaged, they only hire people who seem very independent

    Cons

    Could get stuck selling in a unprofitable area, financial gain is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on standard programs and stop trying to roll out new ones. You are the leader and the biggest yet we have the most out of date software.
