Beautiful company to work for, plenty of benefits

Runner1 (Former Employee)
Cleveland, TN

I worked at Sodexo full-time for more than a year

ConsThere were times that the weather outside was a bit cold and you had to deal with it, but they provided warm clothes and awesome coffee.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the Good work, I love SODEXO.

Great foodservice company

General Manager (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Sodexo full-time for more than 10 years

Prosgood benefits, professional environment, quality is paramount to Sodexo. If you have talent, the upper managment sees it and cares enough to give you opportunities to improve and grow with the company.

ConsI worked on the corporate services side --so we always had weekend and nights off, as well as holidays (which is unheard of in the foodservice industry). Not alot of opportunity for promotions as the market was not too big in this city.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of your office and work with your staff --learn who they are!! Keep the passion for quality strong!

I love this company, blessing to work here

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sodexo full-time

ProsWork-life flex, challenging work, has treated me very well for past 3 years

ConsSalaries are not competitive, not enough resources, too much work lands on one person

Advice to Senior ManagementLook out for your "shining stars" (esp grades 9,10,11)- promote and reward them. You don't want them to go!

Great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sodexo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou have the opportunity to grow...it is up to you! Your resources are the people you work with, for, and have on the sidelines in other support roles.

ConsEvery company, every job is going to have 1 or 2 or more people who are jerks, a#$holes, etc. It is a part of the work environment/culture of our country. While listed in the cons section, this is not a con. Look to the Pros above for the why.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the people at the middle levels the opportunity to do the right thing without so much influence/interference from HR.

I enjoyed every day of my employment at Sodexo and my co-workers were very hard working, professional, and kind.

Bartender/Server (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Sodexo part-time for more than a year

ProsThe vastness of the company is impressive and we lose no personable hospitality just because the company is large.

ConsI my particular case the Tracey didn't need me full time because of the nature of the venue. I would have liked to have worked full time and that is one of the reasons I have relocated. I hope to find full time work with Sodexo in Los Angeles

Advice to Senior ManagementMy manager are some of the best I've ever worked with. Some people might work harder if management was more abrupt. But not me, so I liked my extremely friendly bosses.
