    Pros

    Lots of potential career opportunity if you are willing to relocate to various companies located throughout US. Stable corporation in a very competitive market.

    Cons

    Company is in a constant state of change and pushing for several initiatives across various functional areas. In addition, in the past the Corporation should a strong development of promotion from within, but that has changed in the past few years. Also, bonuses have been drastically cut across the organization last year.

    They built a palace OPCO to house employees treated like serfs.

    I worked at Sysco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sysco Central TX as it is now called is viewed locally as a very respectable place to work. Most salaried positions include bonus incentive and pay scale is above avg for San Antonio especially for non college degree employees.

    Cons

    Highly UN-diversified & stratified workplace with most minorities ''downstairs" in operations. Virtually no non-Latino minorities employed (< 5!) & their retention when hired is abysmal; sparse placement of women in leadership roles. Favoritism & "long-timers" reinforce high resistance to change in people, processes or technology; best practices = to the privileged go the spoils. "New blood" looking for career advancement need not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can't change your perspective to be a more inclusive employer, at least try to foster a cohesive culture vs a divisive, tribal environment where ops is functioning at odds to Merchandising vs Receiving vs Sales. And, think outside your - exec - bonus plan.
