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make employees feel appreciated for the hard work they put in day in and day out, offer more flex time, and revamp the outdated vacation schedule, oh and allow employees access from home.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.

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

    Pros

    Easy job
    Coworkers are mostly older and stupid (don't know excel, access, or any other tools) - If they don't fit this criteria they are foreigners working for a workers visa with horrible communication skills
    Office is new

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive
    Promotions are based on how long you stay at the company - AKA. There is no talent management program here.
    People that work here are mainly family oriented people looking for a stable job. Their is no people here that think outside of the box.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries slightly and get better employees. You will probably see a drastic change in the company.
