    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, good location, great people, good benefits, good communication from management on business developments. Opportunity to work on large high profile projects and with large customers.

    Cons

    The protracted merger process has created a lot of uncertainty. Clearly, not all managers are created equal and US Foods has its share of managers that should not be managing people or projects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open about developments in the business environment and clearly communicate the company's plans if the merger with Sysco does not go through.

    Pros

    Great company for a young person to start oout a career with and grow with. Not a place for a mid-career person to move to.

    Cons

    Do not pay well for the amount of work a specialist does if you are an over achiever like I am.

    Advice to Management

    Put together an incentive package for the Specialist. Some type of bonus structure for excelling at your job.

    Pros

    I worked at one of the larger divisions in the company. We had a lot of long-term employees that were like family.

    Cons

    When I worked there they were under new management at the corporate level. Many rumors and layoffs ensued. Not a good time for the company. With the Sysco deal off the table, this might lead to improvements...

    Advice to Management

    Adjust your management style to be competitive & hire/retain better employees. Lose the boys club.

    Pros

    One year already in Allentown pa facility. Good pay . Long hours. Close to my house . No warehouse would ever pay me as much. I really hate seniority because I don't have it. And people that have it really waste the company's money. But I love US FOODS

    Cons

    I have nothing to say because is a warehouse but trust me we make more than cops but we still warehouse worker lol

    Advice to Management

    Take out seniority. I would never get a vacation due to seniority. These people are wasting your money
