    Pros

    Decent benefits, dedicated management, friendly work environment, room for advancement, competitive salary ranges and generous, employee focused holiday parties. Many employees with decades of experience at the company.

    Under staffed and worked fairly hard. Too many "people" layers to bring effective change quickly. Some departments seem siloed. Annual raise process is lacking

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

    Pros

    Management is good to their employees. Job is interesting and always work to do, never a dull minute. Most employee's of Vistar are long term employee's. Good vacation, sick/personal time. Benefits are good, not real please with the pharmacy portion since they moved to a company that doesnt have a pharnacy in our state which means any long term meds must be order by email. Fair reviews, Manager willing to teach as needed and offers training when needed or asked. Managers help grow their staff to further

    Cons

    Company is growing too big - too quickly. Owner and upper management still the same, however, located elsewhere and the changes within our organization have been bitter sweet throughout the past three years.

    Advice to Management

    listen carefully to the people within your company, but be cautious on reacting to their advise. Research the situations for yourself before acting.

    "Productive and Relaxed Environment"

    Pros

    -Educated, hard working and FUN co-workers
    -Relaxed and open environment, casual Fridays
    -Free Snacks! (if you're in the right department or know the right people)
    -Presence of female and minority leadership
    -Good place to grow and learn, many employees have been here 10+ years
    -Middle management seems to genuinely care about their employees well being
    -Growing and expanding company

    Cons

    -Office building is kinda old
    -Benefits could be improved
    -Could use newer technology in the office
    -Depending on who you talk to and which department, some middle management is not well qualified and need training in managing people
    -Senior management and decision makers are all older and may not be in touch with new technologies or emerging markets
    -Tend to keep people around because of seniority without encouraging growth or further education

    Advice to Management

    Morale could be improved with better benefits, specifically something to allow people more time with their families. Allow people to work remotely or 4/10's or offer some sort of child care option. Management should explore emerging online (global) markets and technologies (i.e. improve web presence, improve VistarVision, look at affiliate marketing, social media, etc.) Also, some employees and departments and understaffed while others have too many. Distribute work loads more evenly and clean house with under producing departments.
