Interesting Work Environment
Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  ConnecticutApril 10, 2017
Good company with a good work environment.

High turnover in finance which resulted in a high demand for self motivated individuals and a need to learn quickly.

The difficult situation allows for an opportunity to rise to the occasion, be creative, find solutions, and shape the environment around you.

There is lots of room for growth if your personality allows it.
Pros
Great Mid level Management. Lots of room for growth
Cons
Segmented training

no work life balance
Sales and Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Canton, MIApril 10, 2017
There is no work life balance. Management is no longer supportive. Compensation structure makes it difficult to make a lot of money (unlike years past)

Great people for the most
Credit TRX Analyst/Coordinator/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNApril 7, 2017
I worked in the Memphis Opco. The department I was in needs a managment change, The benefits are good, great people for the most part. Company going thru many turn overs at this time, they need some management restructure. I enjoyed my job and even the long hours at times, I believe I made relationships that will last long past my employment there, I had planned a career not just a job.

Not a place to work for a lazy person, you need to be on your game and ready to work, but it has many perks.
Pros
benefits
Cons
stressfull to work with some mgt

Sysco
Staff Accountant / Accountant II (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 6, 2017
A great place to start. You become accustomed to long hours and sometimes a 6 or 7 workweek, not ideal for a work life balance. Great people. Lifelong friendship.

High pressure
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  TexasApril 6, 2017
Sysco was a great place to work 7 years ago, but things have changed drastically. They have gone to what is called Cat Man which is the worst decision ever. It greatly limits the products that you have to sell to customers, while competitors easily have access to the products that the consumer wants and needs. Management needs to clean house. You will love this job if you can live on a commission based scale that no one understands.
Pros
Customer relationships
Cons
Long work week, lots of after 5 and weekends

dont have anything
Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Jessup, MDApril 2, 2017
Work was unrealistic and management didn't make it seem doable.
Hours were extremely long like 12 hours a day. You get written up for not being at a certain percentage even though your working well over 60 hours in one week.

Big Company feel both good and bad
Business Technology Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lewisville, TXApril 2, 2017
Job stability and benefits are exactly what you would expect from a company this size. Very hard to get fired unless you do something really stupid or just don't show up. Insurance is good for the most part although Obamacare has increased premiums on healthcare.

As I said, working for Sysco give you that stable (adult) job feel, but you can't get that "stability" without the inevitable treatment that you are just another number on their payroll.

Hard work frequently gets overlooked because of endless layers of bureaucracy. If you work for the corporate office, you will likely never even meet the person who could increase your salary or otherwise reward your performance. So get used to your direct manager saying "I'll see what I can do for you" when it comes to advancing your career or your paycheck.
Pros
stability, decent benefits, located everywhere
Cons
hard to stand out, pay increases are minimal/non existant without a formal promotion

Tough job that compensates fairly.
Warehouse Stocker (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 27, 2017
It was an extremely tolling job, made more so by the overnight schedule. The job paid very well, but a certain level of job proficiency was expected very quickly. Would recommend for the pay, little else though.

Senior Commercial Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 27, 2017
Company is growing fast and a typical day at work is never the same any given day. The culture of the company is quite engaging. There is work/life balance and a level of flexibility.

The systems/servers need to be updated to work smoothly with any amount of data retrieved.
Pros
Great Benefits!!
Cons
Difficult to move up.
