    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of Houston full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The largest food company in North America. The company has a lot of resources and it gives you a competitive advantage.

    Cons

    Goes in too many directions so once you get going they want you to sell off your business to go open up more business and you ultimately lose money.

    Advice to Management

    Yes

    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of Houston full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice campus in Cypress area

    Cons

    If you are under the wrong track of accounting department then your life will be miserable. There is no work life balance, no respect to the employees. Deadline and Opco are the concern of the upper management. Upper management do not care your workload. They keep adding work into your workload and if you miss deadline, they will find the way to put you down on your CMP (

    Advice to Management

    Why every month one or two people leave Sysco? Because they are not happy with the way upper management treat them. Micro-management make them feel unhappy.

    Pros

    benefits, discount on meat. some of the people are helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    no organization, a lot of finger pointing, basically management lacks in streamlining work flow. everyone moves in different directions and very little training in all areas
    you must figure it out on your own and hope it's correct. no teamwork in some areas

    Advice to Management

    don't be afraid to take action with employees who are there to just waste time. take a look at your hardworkers. respect them and support is key. acknowledge and take the time to investigate why and get personally involved in issues.
