    I have been working at Bunzl Distribution USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Culture, Great People, Company invests in Career Paths, Training & Software. Leadership remembers everyone's name regardless of position.

    Cons

    It's like any other work environment. People you surround yourself with really make the positive or negative difference.

    Advice to Management

    The new Bunzl culture is a great fit in conjunction with the investments to take us to the next level.

    I worked at Bunzl Distribution USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was ok.

    Cons

    They have ineffective managers. Micro managing adults and not giving credit where due brings moral down too far to want to stay employed here. I am happy I left. There is a great life after Bunzl.

    Advice to Management

    Choose your management with more wisdom. Employee turnover is a sign of a poorly managed office. Happy, well adjusted employees will work better & harder than disgruntled employees.

    Pros

    Stable, good benefits, if you do your job well you will not be recognized but leadership will leave you alone.

    Cons

    Performance will not get you promoted. Leaders will tell you what you want to hear about advancement. Legacy leaders at branch level that should be scrutinized more closely about performance and leadership capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Hold leaders to the same standards as their reports.

    I have been working at Bunzl Distribution USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is that there are great people. If I didn't like my co-workers I would have left a long time ago.

    Cons

    Bunzl continues to add other businesses into their portfolio and the result is receiving more work for the same pay. Working O/T and weekends isn't enough to keep your head above water. More customers are being taken on but no new associates are brought in, not even to replace those leaving.

    Advice to Management

    My main advice is that they learn the processes and resources involved with their decisions. Being told that "this is the world now" is not an answer to saddened and broken down employees.

    Pros

    High stock with options to buy in as an employee whenever. Great hours if you're a morning person.

    Cons

    Very little consistency, low management skills

    Advice to Management

    Move into the 2010's. Your technology is severely lacking and will become compromised and further inefficient unless action is taken.

    Pros

    I cannot say enough good things about Bunzl. This is a fun and safe working environment. I started out as a sale rep and recently promoted to sales manager. They have been very good to me through the years and I look forward to another 20 years with Bunzl.

    Cons

    I honestly do not have any.

    Advice to Management

    I have been lucky to have great mentor ship throughout my 20 years. I continue to have leaders that want me to succeed and arm me with the tools I need to do so.
