    Pros

    Fun, dynamic, big goals, beautiful offices, wonderful perks like subsidized or free lunches, employee celebrations, great coffee & bar area.

    Cons

    Decisions not made by data and priorities change on a regular basis. The overall rating would have been a 5 a year ago, now I'd make it a 1 but thought I'd average it out...

    Pros

    free lunches once a week, good perks especially during the holidays great co-workers not management. The employees were the back bone of the company. Unfortunately the CEO had delusions of grandeur and ran the company into the ground

    Cons

    The company has some of the worst management in the industry, they allowed the CEO to run the company into the ground. The company cannot pay its bills and its on the verge of bankruptcy

    Nice Building, occasional free lunch.

    I worked at FoodServiceWarehouse.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free lunch occasionally. All the free air, water, coffee and toilet paper you may need.

    Cons

    Dishonest Management. Hardcore cronyism 5 rounds of layoffs in 6 months. This company seems to be quickly imploding due to cash flow problems and questionable business practices. Office that resemble a modern designer’s nightmare. Life in the call center is a bottom dollar position with no room for advancement. HR is a bad joke. CEO is a bigger joke.

    I have been working at FoodServiceWarehouse.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great, fun, smart coworkers, for the most part. Almost everyone would tell you they made a lot of lasting friends that they met working at FSW. -Subsidized lunches or free lunches some of the week -Nice building, amenities etc. -No micro-management -(Used to have) Room for growth (as long as you drink the kool-aide)

    Cons

    - Poor decisions (as most of the recent reviews will show) regarding money-management and allotment of resources has very nearly toppled the company entirely - Less than truthful updates from upper management and the CEO regarding the status of affairs the last year or so - 4 rounds of layoffs, with a HIGH possibility of more, starting in August of 2015 and most recently in January has left the remaining employees paranoid and has bred toxic attitudes. - New information in the last few weeks about the actual financial status of the company and forcing the CEO to step down has increased the paranoia and toxicity. -Current morale and vibe is incredibly bad, obviously. -Even before all of this drama, FSW has always been a 'work hard, play hard' type of place; but by work hard, I mean practically run yourself ragged. Meaning it's borderline taboo to even take your full hour lunch if you are salaried, and I haven't ever seen ANYONE take a full 2 week vacation. Its very much expected for you to come to work even if you are sick, work overtime, and "get the job done", even if it is detrimental to yourself or personal life. You drink the kool-aide and sell your soul to get a pat on the head. -Goals have been set to 60% growth and higher in the past.

    Pros

    There were many pros in the past, zero as of now. There was free lunch, and an excellent rapport between co-workers.

    Cons

    Egotistical CEO moving the company in too many different directions at once. Without a plan of even successfully completing one. FSW will fail because of him

    Pros

    Free lunch once a week. Nice people. Never boring. Trying to stay cutting edge on new tools. Basically make your own position.

    Cons

    Very hectic. Very Busy. Still trying to find the course they wish to go. Human Resources was not very communicative and is their weakest department possibly even deceitful. With the level of layoffs that just happened I can't recommend working here.

    Pros

    Fun and intelligent people, a drive to work hard, and free lunch once per week.

    Cons

    Some of the reviews are a bit unfair. Is the company going through change? Yes, but it is not as bad as some of them say. The company definitely moves quickly and in return a lot of things are forgotten, which is the company's biggest downfall.

    Pros

    coworkers (if you can get past the high school drama), free lunches, nice building?

    Cons

    Where to even start? First off the CEO is an egomaniac that goes out of his way to belittle people and make them fail. We had company meetings where "our leader" would do nothing but pump up his ego by talking about how great he was. In fact it began to feel like a cult and most people were "drinking the koolaid" for fear of dissaproval from the leader. I have never seen a grown 30 something year old man act more like a child in my life. He would throw literal tantrums if he did not get his way. No wonder no one in this industry has any sort of respect for you. Respect is earned not demanded. On to the management... none of them know what they are doing at all. All they do is cater to the baby in charge and all of them are afraid to stand up for what is right. SOME of you do know the right way and are so afraid of dissaproval that you won't do so. In turn the entire company has suffered. Maybe you should come out of your office once in a while and know what is happening in the day to day operations. As far as the culture goes it was great when I started but has completely died. All that is left is people who will do anything it takes to please the baby in charge. Your coworkers will step on you and stab you in the back to make themselves look good to the CEO. You cannot trust a single person there. Everyone is so scared for their jobs and livelihood that they will not hesitate to throw you under the bus the first chance they get. The goals and structure were unnatainble and unrealistic at best. Who suffered as a result of that? The employees... bonuses that should have been granted due to hard work never ever were. If you want to fear for your job every single day and be completely miserable then work here.
