    Nice company and people but uncertain future due to merger.

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Rosemont, IL

    ProsAttempt at creating positive culture. Company had been winning in marketplace. Many nice people.

    ConsAcquired by Sysco but not closed yet. Acquisition creates a very uncertain pessimistic future. Leadership trying to convince folks to stay but not convincing. Only a handful will benefit from acquisition and it will clearly be bad for customers, competition and employees. FaceTime culture is not modern.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit trying to convince people there is opportunity when they know better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
