    I worked at Sysco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a Fortune 500 company, good to add to resume, they're the largest in the industry with the worst supply chain practices

    Cons

    The health benefits are expensive, middle management is only interested in get their bonuses that they do not invest back in to their departments, the company is unstable regardless of the stock price. The C suite is selling the employees a dream telling them their position is important but still getting of departments. If you have a degree do not work at the cypress location you'll never make it back to corporate
