    Pros

    Aramark is a good company to work for... they are just like other companies out there trying to do the best thing for there employees and customers.

    Cons

    allot of goal but no clear direction. There is always a push to achieve the marginal numbers but no clear direction for management or insight on how...Which more of the managers knew what they were doing....

    Advice to Management

    Invest time in you firing process. alot of dead beats on the payroll. focus more attention on training and personnel.
