    Always keep an open mind and look to embrace new and untried ideas.

    I worked at Sysco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for with very solid incentives. Individual performance was rewarded and the team I was on was very motivated.

    Cons

    Upper management bloat and stagnation caused some easily avoided animosity and saw more than a few passed over for what should be no-brainer promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim the upper management and give more feedback avenues for the boots on the ground.
