    Good transitional employer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits, office culture, salary and people - all are decent. Office culture is laid back and business casual. Location is near many good restaurants.

    ConsNo room for growth or advancement within the company. Education and training are not stressed or encouraged. Too many re-inventions of the wheel

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on employee education and training opportunities to enhance skills needed for advancement within the company. Improve on internal communications.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people... for the most part

    Accounts Receivable (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    Pros-Great benefits and great people to work for if you're in the right department.
    -Truly understand that work is not life and try to accommodate as much as possible without impacting the entire department
    -Would have stayed if I wasn't changing to an entirely different field

    ConsI've heard some horror stories about other departments not having the best management or work environment. My department fortunately didn't have these problems.
    Not enough communication between departments often felt like departments were competing against each other within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at departments that don't have a high rate of turnover to see what they are doing right and encourage departments to work together.

    Overall, Good Experience so Far. Only time will tell with the Merge with Sysco.

    Sales Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Port Orange, FL

    ProsGood Company to work for. If your smart, you can usually move up after you prove yourself. Management is a little more reluctant with warehouse workers of course. There's a stereotype with warehouse workers, and if you are smart, it will still be hard for you to attain a job on the office side due to stereotyping.

    ConsPersonally, I've seen them fire somebody that's worked there for over 10 years on the drop of a dime for something insignificant. If the time comes, they don't care about you or your seniority. Which is expected I guess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advise? My opinion is that US Foods needs to look to people with computer skills and have more fluid intelligence. Too often, I see departments seeking older people with crystalline intelligence and are completely computer illiterate. A lot of my superiors are not intelligent with computers and have an inability to reason abstractly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
