    Pros

    Great company. Pay good, I got a 40% bump in pay when I came to the company from my previous. Projects here were transformational and exciting to work on. Management is very transparent. I always knew how the company was doing. Leadership was very open about our future with the merger. I understood that my position would be eliminated because the headquarters would be moved to Houston. This gave me plenty of time to look for the right position that I was excited to move on to.

    Cons

    The sale to Sysco and the long stretch of not knowing what will happen. It's still in a review process with the gov. The headquarters will be in Houston which means we will eventually be laid off. Many of us were told between 3 to 6 months after the close date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am leaving the company but stay transparent with those still here. Honor your commitments to your team.

    I worked at US Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

    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

    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.
