    Sometimes managment could get clicky. To some it may seem to be unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Keep personal fronds hips out of the work place. It makes for a uncomfortable work place for some.

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team concept from senior management with lots of areas to have career development. Sodexo puts value into their staff if you want to learn and have a can do attitude.

    Cons

    Clients tend to want more than they are willing to pay for and savings goals are sometimes unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build value in your managers and don't compromise on talent. Take the time to properly train your VPOs as they are not aware of what may be required at the pace the business is asking for.

    I worked at Sodexo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great corporation from global standpoint. Good benefits. Once you are hired they encourage you to look around for other Sodexo jobs to improve yourself

    Cons

    You are at the mercy of your new boss. Depending on their personality, you could be happy or not at all. For a very structured company, you never know who's coming in to be your boss.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to line level and lower management about how they feel. They know more about the dynamics than anyone.
