    I worked at Gordon Food Service full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company as a whole was wonderful. The benefits and bonuses were great. They treat you like family. The teams that you are on becoming tight knit.

    Cons

    I was there during the massive expansions. They grew really fast and the growing pains were huge. Some teams felt the pressure more than others. Working 6 days for some people and not others on the same team. Felt over worked at times.
    Advancement opportunities: Some teams felt like hotel California- You felt like you couldn't advance even when applying for teams that you worked closely with. Seems that they picked Fresh graduates vs tenured employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work at making sure your employees are happy. Respect them, keep an open mind. Keep innovating.
