    Pros

    Leader in the market with strong presence and vast resources. More than 3 decades of success and domination of the market.

    Cons

    Leadership is somewhat fragmented and there can be competing agendas. Also there is a tendency towards a lack of discipline and occasionally inconsistent application of policies. Accountability could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Sysco Los Angeles has improved significantly over the past year. A top leadership change began the process of rebuilding. But there is an tendency to be arrogant due to their size that works against them. Hunger and humility would go a long ways to improving it.
