    Pros

    Great team members, steady paycheck, plenty of opportunities to better your skills, room for growth,

    Cons

    Short staffed accounts, higher level managers who didn't do their job but pushed it off on others, hours that made you feel you lived at the account,

    Advice to Management

    You need to take a closer look at your criteria for downsizing an account. I was laid off but someone who wasn't doing the job, and it was known by area manager, kept theirs. Performance would be a better criteria than seniority.

    Pros

    Sodexo is a very culturally excepting and advanced company. It's diversity and inclusion initiatives are excellent. It is always changing to be on the cutting edge of its business.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very difficult to find in most management positions. The execs rarely take even holidays off from email setting the example and expectation for others.

    Advice to Management

    Those with company longevity have great institutional knowledge. Learning to value it and retain it will benefit the company with growth and reduced frustration of newcomers.
