    I have been working at ARAMARK

    Pros

    Ability to work in an exciting atmosphere with fun people. Experience a vast amount of entertainment events while working. Overtime usually available.

    Cons

    Advancement depends on local accounts in your area. If company is losing accounts, there are no positions to step up to. Glass ceiling is a brick wall most times.
