    Pros

    Free food, great subsidized buffet lunches, good pay and benefits, nice offices, work-out room, free parking.

    Cons

    Unfriendly corporate culture. About three managers for every five employees at Corporate. Gossipy cliques wield a lot of power, in a negative way. Communication and career growth not valued. Only the mediocre stay more than three years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your offices and talk to your employees, not just to each other. Hire more workers and less Directors and Senior Managers.

    Pros

    My experience with PFG was extremely positive. The company is made up of a lot of people that have left the corporate top-down food distributors At it's core are a number of employees from legacy companies that were the original founding companies of PFG. Employees are hardworking, dedicated, and committed to taking care of customers. Management is supportive and developing an excellence culture that is received well by employees and customers. No frills approach to getting the job done and deliver the cases. Salesforce is not encumbered with excessive reporting. Each operating division acts autonomously, focus is on taking care of customers and developing employees to take care of the customer.

    Cons

    They are still learning to be nimble in the marketplace. Working on systems and processes that enhance the customer experience is key. From a marketing perspective PFG might be a little to quick to imitate rather than innovate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let operating companies run, this is a customer by customer process and operating companies can make nimble decisions. Continue to invest in technology that enables operating companies to streamline customer functions and provide timely and accurate deliveries. . Great opportunity to set yourselves apart from the mega players in the space. Focus on delivering those boxes quickly and efficiently and most importantly, continue to invest in quality people.

    I worked at Performance Food Group

    Pros

    The medical and 401(k) benefits were decent. The salary was comparable to the Richmond, VA market and the severance package was decent. Two weeks vacation after 1 year, 6 paid holidays and 4 paid personal days.

    Cons

    IT service and support has taken a hit due to IT outsourcing. Privately owned company looking to go public at the expense of employees and American jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for letting me go, I needed a paid break. Good luck with the IT outsourcing.
