    I worked at Sysco full-time

    Pros

    For the most part Sysco is a great company to work for. Interesting work, and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Some promotions are based on who you know instead of what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who gets promoted to management positions, and review with direct reports once in awhile to give them a voice.

    I have been working at Sysco (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company. A lot of training.

    Cons

    Management is not honest or trustworthy. Processes in place make it very difficult to service customers. Bad customer service due to deliveries. A lot of favoritism going on with management giving large customer base to people they like.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the delivery issues and this will stop you from losing customers. New customer is the company priority, so measures should be put in place not to lose those new customers.

    Pros

    Fast-paced high activity environment. Constantly solving problems and helping customers with their businesses. The company culture is sales oriented and aggressive.

    Cons

    Sysco does not put the customer first (internal or external). Commision structure is complicated and the ability to increase commission earnings is extremely limited.

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay but no raises 3 out of the 5 years so far
    Good coworkers

    Cons

    Collaboration is not used. Managers are disengaged from their employees and use others feedback on reviews without talking to employees. I've even heard managers talking about their employees horribly to gain favor with another manager. Employees are not always heard or praised but frequently chastised.

    Advice to Management

    Help managers learn to provide an environment where all employees feel valued, not just the favored ones. Value everyone's opinion.
