    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of San Francisco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Vision plan was awesome!

    Cons

    Management lies to you. They'll do anything to hit their bonus...even break the law.
    If you're a salaried employee and you work a holiday, don't expect to get a comp day.
    They don't care about Work/Life Balance. If you finish 11 hours of work in 8 hours, they'll give you more until you're actually working for 11 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be appreciative! If you see someone working their tail off to finish a project, try saying "Thank You", or "Great Job"....instead of "What took you so long?"

    Recognize the fact that if you don't know how to do your subordinates' jobs, you'll be in trouble if they leave or you lay them off.

    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of San Francisco (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Depending on the boss you gotta sell your soul first, though.

    Cons

    Never, never experienced such neglect of a worker. Had many moments when I wondered how a supposedly great company (image ...) could prosper with ethics in the trash bin at best. And the union sure helps explaining a deal about that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know thyself. If we follow lowly instincts we are lower than an animal, for they follow natural instincts. Get to know thyself.

    Current Employee - Marketing Associate in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at SYSCO Food Services of San Francisco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you meet and/ or exceed the [reasonable] expectations set for a Marketing Associate (sales rep), you will be well rewarded for your work, via your pay, bonuses, level of freedom and trust, and there are even trips that you can win throughout the year as a reward! You can also make build great relationships with customers in all types of operations, from fast food to fine dining, hotels to schools, etc.

    Cons

    Foodservice distribution is competetive anywhere, especially in the Bay Area and the city of San Francisco. Also, keeping customers happy if thers an issue (i.e. late truck) is time sensitive and can be stressful, but there is stress in any good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is always improving, and I'd say the more the better, since Sysco's Sales team is out in the field and not in an office where it's easier to stay in the loop.
