    Pros

    The company is going through a lot of great changes, which will open them up to several untouched markets, bringing more money for the company.

    The changes taking place at Sysco are causing them to lose site of the employees needs. There is very little work life balance which is conducive to a healthy work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the employees it will reduce the turnover rate.

    I worked at Sysco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    people are nice to work with. IT has a slow pace. They pay relatively fair rate. Good place for counsulting people, not very pushing.

    Cons

    Incentive plan is not attractive, that is probably why the working pace is slow. Mid-level management need to focus on actual work, not always focus on flattering your boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select powerful management team
