    Pros

    I have worked at a lot of places and FSW is more unique than words can describe. You can feel the energy when you step inside. The people that work here are talented and dedicated to continuing to help it grow and expand. The CEO Madhu is not like any typical management person I have known in my career. He knows many of us on a personal level and has always taken the time to listen to my comments or give me advice on something I was working on. As the company has grown, it has continued to expand the amenities it offers to the people who work here - free food rules!

    Cons

    The pace is not for everyone - the place has grown by leaps and bounds since I have been here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate and let us know what is happening. Work hard to keep the culture and the close knit community feel as the company continues to grow.

    Pros

    Salary/benefits
    Free food
    THREE MONITORS EACH
    Good learning experience for recent grads/dropouts

    Cons

    Their growth pains transformed FSW into a corporate monster, one with more heads than it knows what to do with. Yes, they began as a "start-up" but they sure ain't anymore.
    The management style is great if you're ready to drink the koolaid and become an FSW soldier, yes sir, no sir...

    Advice to Management

    Fix your HR department. It's a plastic facade of a team - oh but it matches the furniture!!! Keep those wages nice and high though.

    Pros

    FSW has a great company culture and I really enjoyed the team that I worked with. I was given a good level of anonymity and ownership to pursue aspects of my position I felt would benefit the company. My department head Jason H was awesome and took the time to listen and communicate with his team.

    The CEO Madhu was also a really great guy. You can tell he really cares about the people who work for him and makes them a priority. He provides an environment that allows people to own their work, experiment. With him you don't have to be afraid to fail as long as you learn from your failures and improve the next go around.

    Cons

    The site is massive so implementing anything new was a slow process. They are tied to a number of industry constraints and relationships which don't allow them to be as agile as they could. It sounded like Madhu was in the process of releasing themselves from some of those bonds around the time I left not sure how far it was taken though.

    Office is located in the Suburbs.

    Pros

    Been at the company for 3+ years and have watched it evolve and grow. The company has stuck by me through tough times in my life when they didn't have to. I work with a great set of people who are passionate about what they do and have seen multiple people move up and through the organization through the vast amounts of opportunity due to growth.

    Cons

    Lots of new people - hard to know all the new people and what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and letting us know what is going on. Keep your foot on the gas and make this place bigger and better!

    Pros

    FSW is a creative, vibrant place to work full of great people and lots of perks. We get fed by a chef once a week, and are launching a program for the other days to buy healthy chef-prepared lunch options.

    They love their employees, and everything they do for us shows that.

    Cons

    We work as hard as we play. If you come to work from us, you realize we live in our own time vortex.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Exposure to lots of different jobs and skill sets in a short period of time.

    Pros

    I liked the people in general, but the company and management does not care if you exist because you are expendable.

    Cons

    I feel degraded and humiliated by this company...everything you say will be misconstrued and you will feel like there is something genuinely wrong with you. If you expect anyone in HR to be friendly, think again...

    Pros

    In my opinion the only pro for me was the mere fact that I was employed...Company does not hold up to it's promises.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, my experience with FoodServiceWarehouse.com was extremely disappointing. The training is minimal (one day) and the office is very loud and unprofessional. Finance department is situated in open cubicle's, next to individuals that use profanity and speak very loud to engage casual conversation to individuals across other cubicle's. Compensation is also poor for the amount of work that is expected. HR was none existent when I made attempts to speak to them about private matters. Certainly would not recommend this company due to lack of professionalism, low compensation and lack of HR availability.

    Advice to Management

    The message that was conveyed to new hires by HR on the first day was- "Speak up, take charge and drive positive changes by being supportive and confident." Sadly enough when I "spoke up" about a positive change, I was ignored, bullied by my own boss, spoken to in a rude manner by HR and eventually laid off.
