    Pros

    The sales training program is one of the best hands on training any sales associate could get.

    Cons

    You have to use your own car to drive to and from sales calls. I currently drive 600-800 miles a week on my own dime.

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The environment is welcoming. Truly a team atmosphere that is not always present in a sales driven company. Results oriented, but more importantly the tools are available to be successful.

    Cons

    In the time I have been with the company I have not felt there were negatives. Sure, sometimes there are opportunities for improvement, but a person will find that anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Carefully guard the culture. It's priceless.

    Pros

    Sysco is the premier food distribution company in the world. They have a great culture and environment in the work place and take wonderful care of their employees.

    Cons

    They are currently going through restructuring the organization so there are some pain-points that come along with restructure. Once ironed out, they will continue to be the best in the business
