Not impressed
Accountant I (Current Employee) –  Cypress, TXJuly 15, 2016
Does not pay well, but expects a lot of hours put in. Benefits are pretty bad, commute is great (Cypress location). Overall, the commute and casual dress code are not worth the poor pay, benefits and work/life balance. Plus, they are constantly making changes in their processes/procedures, and moving their employees into different roles. Lots of meetings but nothing gets done.
Pros
Commute, casual dress code, 9/80 schedule offered
Cons
Pay, benefits, work/life, management, constant changes

Employer is not bad, the customers are the problem.
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Baraboo, WIJuly 13, 2016
There used to be more loyalty in sales and now it's all about the price. Sysco is a high quality kind of company and have the prices to go along with it. Unfortunately, many restaurants these days are not focused as much on quality and it's all about cost of goods sold.

You've been warned, enter at own risk.
Order Selector/Loader/fork lift operator (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 10, 2016
Working nights from 4 pm until everyone is done. About 2 am to 4 am.The pay is good if management doesn't screw you over to where you default ( make base pay, lose about $7 an hour). The job is expected to be hard. Moving cases constantly for 10 to 12 hours. But thats not the problem. Its all management that creates the worst work place. They dont run the crew right. They single people out and give them the hard work and cause them to make less. The more you know how to do for this company the less you make. You are better being a new person and dont learn any other positions other than order selecting. Thats where you will make the most. The company does promote within. But be cautious of what position you move to. In particular positions on the night shift.
Pros
Hourly wage, free drinks, benefits are great. Awesome CEO.
Cons
Management, they dont care about you or how they treat you. There is a bit of favortism.

Get out what you put in
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 9, 2016
At times, during busier periods, be prepared to correct issues as they occur from 4 am to 8 pm. Holidays are the busiest times for your clients so availability around holidays is key to success, taking vacations have led to loss in business. If you work hard and produce above expectation the compensation can be wonderful. Benefits and 401k match is as high as I have seen it. Huge company, lot's of potential for advancement.
Pros
Benefits, Compensation, Opportunity

Overrall great company to work for. Travel is required and a bit exceccive in the Internal Audit Department.
INTERNAL CONTROL AUDIT SENIOR (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 26, 2016
Typical day is review of SOX and operational controls. Some special projects are available. Overall great teamwork, everyone is very helpful and understanding. I learned tons on internal audit and operations as my prior jobs were external audit jobs. Management is making changes and pushing forward. The hardest part of the job is the required 50% travel. The most enjoyable part of the job relates to the people I worked with.
