Pros

Sysco provides a good benefits package including a pension, medical, dental, and vision. There is also a 401k. Sysco is a national company, allowing for possible relocation.

Cons

There is not a good work/life balance, and little tolerance for family needs. There is no good career path. There are more opportunities in Houston at the headquarters, but it is harder to lateral there than it is to hire there from outside. Education is not valued and will not contribute to your career progression/promotability.

Advice to Management

Take a look at turnover by department, and you will see some clear patterns. You should be asking yourself why.

    Pros

    Training, product mix, the leader in the industry. Good bonus program. Advancement is out there if you desire to do so.

    Cons

    This is really a 7 day a week position. You certainly have flexibility during the work day, but many customers order on the weekends which trancends into a very hard time of planning your weekends. It is almost impossible to attend your child's ballgame or wedding. You have to make arrangements to have someone cover your customers.

    Advice to Management

    Read those employee satisfaction surveys!

    I have been working at SYSCO Food Services of Baltimore full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about food, sales Technics, and be organized in your job

    Cons

    The click down is a killer, the effort and the growth in sales are not compensated properly. No work / life balance, they are expecting you to work 24/7 and long meetings every week.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more your employees and care more about people
