    Pros

    Great environment as far the co-workers and some of the perks of working there.

    Cons

    The worst team leads and upper management. You can't ask the team leads or upper management too many questions because they don't know anything. Basically they want you to do all of their work. If you go to HR you can forget it!!! HR being on your side when it comes to telling how you feel about management they are in the business of firing because they only listen to management outlook. No real growth opportunities like they will feed you in the interview.Oh and lastly, they are the worst paid company. this job is for inexperienced people

    Pros

    Lots of product lines to sell.

    Cons

    Sysco clearly lost its focus on being a quality employer. Lots of turnover and politics. You are just a number on a spreadsheet.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where Sysco came from and who got them there. No more CYA managers.

    Pros

    Good overall company. Advancement is very possible but

    If you make an enemy or someone just says a negative thing then it is surely over.

    Advice to Management

    Look at overall career. Not just the past 2-3 years.

    Pros

    Opportunity to make great money and move up. Great benefits

    Cons

    To make good money requires 6 days a week and 10-14 hour days. It's tough. Not everyone can handle it. Large turn over rate. If you don't work your way into the "Boys" club your work experience is going to be mor difficult.
