    Pros

    The paycheck is decent. If you get off on crass jokes and screwing people over then you'll have a great time.

    Cons

    Management motivates with fear, not incentive. Employees are expendable. Extremely high stress job. You will come to love your customers but hate your coworkers, which will put you in a moral bind because the company will demand that you screw your customers over. This is by far the embodiment of everything bad that people mean when they say "big corporation". By the way, the new software they just rolled out is absolutely awful, even though they will try to say otherwise. Did you see that movie Office Space? This is about a million times worse than that. Also the benefits suck.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management has nothing to worry about because as long as they keep stepping on the little guy they will be fine - right up to the day that they file for bankruptcy because their company has died from within.

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent, free food all the time, interesting field.

    Cons

    The work of 3 people is placed on 1 person, most employees don't get to take a lunch and put in 50-60 hrs without extra compensation, not a family-oriented company, no flexibility on hours, no incentives for meeting department goals, so why bother busting tail to meet those goals when you get paid the same regardless? Also, insurance is lousy for such a large corporation!

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee morale by offering incentives when goals are met, make employees feel appreciated for the hard work they put in day in and day out, offer more flex time, and revamp the outdated vacation schedule, oh and allow employees access from home. You have lots of young mothers and vacation time is quickly used up on taking care of sick kids.
