    Pros

    Generally, the company pays their employees well. Upper management does a good job communicating the company's performance and vision with employees at all levels.

    Cons

    The company in the process of being acquired by Sysco. Future employment after the deal closes is very uncertain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to retain as much talent as possible after the merger/acquisition.

    Pros

    If your able to sell, and have high volume large customers you can make a good living.
    The benefits are standard and basic. Health, 401k, etc.
    The technology piece was rather good for industry standards, iphone apps for customers to order, online web ordering, order entry..

    Cons

    The pending SYSCO acquisition made it hard to get new business. Also it demolished employee moral through out all departments of the company.
    As a territory manager your 100% commission which can be nerve racking for someone who depends on a stable income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shouldn't have agreed to Sysco acquisition

    Pros

    The company has had direction, the problem is we don't know where that direction is headed with the pending Sysco acquisition of us.

    Cons

    Benefits have really gone down hill. I'm sure some of that is Obamacare, but they only have terrible options left.
    Working at one of the support offices, it can feel like your contributions don't matter at all.
    Pending Sysco acquisition makes working here very sketchy. We don't know which direction the new company will go, or who could be let go very soon.
    The company is terrible when it comes to providing formal training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people. Get better benefits. We need a defined promotion path, and training.

    Pros

    Numbers don't lie. They call it work for a reason. Lots of education on products.

    Cons

    Lots of change in Corporate structure with more drastic change coming shortly. Always trying to reinvent the wheel which wasn't broken till upper mgt. said so. Again, numbers don't lie!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Luck and God Bless the people tossed away after years of undying loyalty. You should think more of them than your "golden parachute". It's obsene what you all take from the sweat of employees backs! Thank Goodness for Division Presidents to buffer employees from the top.
