Pros – The majority of my work experience and skill acquisition happened here. They provided solid, secure employment during the recession. They downsized only a handful of positions during that time.
They focused on maintaining good workers. They operate with the idea that there is such a thing as a warehouse professional. Good work/life balance.
Cons – They get leaner with each passing year; a little too much. Compensation got smaller, benefits got worse. Opportunities for advancement are REALLY slim.
Advice to Senior Management – Speaking from the operations side of the business, I don't have to many complaints. My advice would be to stay connected and visible to your employees.
Pros – Gained better knowledge of great foods.
Cons – Brutal company to work for...expenses rack up, big company that cares little about personal life and peoples free time.
Advice to Senior Management – Implode.
Pros – This isn't exactly the company i worked for
Cons – Worked for Sysco foods, not asian foods. Competitive
Pros – It's a fortune 500 company.
Cons – there is not any fairness.
Pros – If it is this hard to think of any pros, I guess there really isn't any. At one time this used to be a good company to work for, but as of now, not so much.
Cons – Management… or lack there of… is a problem. Made-up promises would define such. Upper level operations has no clue to what is going on in lower level operations. Expectations are raised and compensation is lowered, seems to be the trend. Poor communication at all levels of the company, and product quality and job performance is suffering. The lack of upward and downward communication will eventually be the end of this company.
Advice to Senior Management – There needs to be a complete overhaul throughout the company… If you will, a recalibration. A simple fix would be to place an educated management staff in place. The job should focus on safety first, quality second, and quantity third.
Pros – The employees are friendly and have varied backgrounds. Good initial compensation and benefit package.
Cons – The leadership in the upper management is severely lacking. Ineffective and unskilled management. Upper management doesn’t value outside education like they should. They can be a bit naive about current knowledge in the industry that they are involved in. Middle management is not encouraged to professionally develop the talent of their workforce by upper management. The morale of the company is poor. Poor recognition of employee’s skills. Favoritism is another obvious issue. Lower than going market rate for wages/salaries.
Advice to Senior Management – Value your people, get over yourself. Listen and seek input from your employees is crucial to your business. Walk the walk instead of talking the talk.
Pros – Fast paced environment. Many challenges and exciting opportunities for someone who is looking to work in the food service industry.
Cons – Asian foods, like any other large corporation is always looking for ways to cut costs and personnel. I think this is a strong downfall of theirs.
Advice to Senior Management – I think the management at Asian Foods should consider more the personal effects of their actions on to the employees.
Pros – The job I perform pays on a piece rate plan, so the faster and harder workers are paid more because they do more work. Recently a plan was outlined which gives raises at specific points in years of service. Also, the company is smaller, so there is a lot of interaction with various members of upper management and other departments.
Cons – The company is at times too focused on the bottom line. The benefits package gets worse each year. Also, employees are treated as being dispensable.
Advice to Senior Management – Do to the very physical nature of most employees functions at the company, the company should focus on making the functions easier physically. And all employees should be notified of changes in the company structure/positions/people at least a week before the changes occur, when possible.
Pros – Good experience working for a national company. Employment diversity.
Cons – Management lacks education, skills, experience and competence. From being a family business going to a SYSCO company left inept leaders at the helm and all employees suffer. Power is not distributed but granted by inheritance. Sales management lacks any skill and sales acumen. Although a SYSCO Opco it does not share in the same benifits as others, such as profit sharing, time off and bonuses.
Advice to Senior Management – Dump all top staff and restart. Reorganize power over the business outcome. Inventory has too much power over what the company does in every aspect.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Diversity work place.
Flexible work hours for sale reps.
Senority for those who have been with the company long
Better workload as time goes by
Cons – Vague bonus/ incentive pay system
Most managers lack mangement skills, some even lack basic sale skills
Inconsistent directions from top mangement
Poor team spirit
Advice to Senior Management – Need to be humble and start to learn the business.
listen to the sale rep and ask for their opinons
Also stop being so insecure and take things too personal
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
