    Pros

    Great environment , quiet place to work. nice gym, great fringe benefits. Laid back job

    Cons

    Difficult hiring process.. hard to move upwards. Most tenured people stay in the same position therefore not creating any job stir. too much food on site.

    i have no advise for the management. Often not really sure what is the inevitable goal of the company as far as its employees go.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, decent management, Client facing

    Cons

    This company does not value your time. There has, of late, been a move away from customer service and toward an asinine CRM that serves little function to the MA or the customer. Sysco is consistently the most expensive competitor in a very price sensitive marketplace, and the operations and support range from frustrating to laughably counter-productive.

    The HQ in Houston is a disaster, and their incompetence and lack of insight into operations at the opco level has a real and detrimental effect on day to day operations.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service, know when you've lost and ABANDON the Salesforce 360 platform.
