    I have been working at SYSCO Intermountain Food Services full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for salaried employees. Spacious work area and office space.

    Cons

    Terrible office politics (i.e. Micromanagement, tattletales, scare tactics) Management does not listen to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say. Do not use scare tactics and micromanagement to try and achieve end goals.

    Pros

    They have good health and other benefits. You form great relationships with co-workers and customers. I learned a lot of new things about the food industry.

    Cons

    You're always working. There is no work/life balance. I don't recommend this job if you have kids. You do a lot of driving in your own car, and they don't cover any transportation costs.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is fair and good benefits

    Cons

    Most finance and support positions are expected to work 50-60 hours per week without much consideration for work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just give work-life balance lip service as has been the case. The grind it out culture needs to be changed to keep the best talent.

    Pros

    Great health benefits and some great people to work with. I've learned a lot.

    Cons

    No work life balance. This is a 24/7 job. Quite a few cutthroat sales people. It's very stressful and tough business to be in. They are going through a lot of transitions right now.

    Pros

    Good initial training and overall a good job if you enjoy working a ton.

    Cons

    Flagrant abuse of of pay scale, salary, bonus, etc. The company has lost sight of customer service and the staff it requires to service said customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics and stop trying to recreate the wheel...

    Pros

    Great benefits for my family and great flexibility when you are a sales associate.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism involved. Many in the company are related in some way to the C.E.O. and he influences who advances and who stays and who goes. His family has great job security afforded to them no matter what they do. I respect how he got to his position, but those in his family he protects and creates new positions for when they fail at a current position are definitely irritating.

    Advice to Management

    Look to and support your actual talent and recognize when others must be let go, regardless of their ties or how they got their job.
