    I have been working at ARAMARK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Aramark has been a refuge in a former storm of nasty-people-screw-up-the-job experiences. I love the people.

    - Life-work balance is good

    - The benefits are good

    - The company is undergoing massive change right now, so it's an exciting time for some with a lot of opportunities available.

    Cons

    - The culture of the company is OLD SCHOOL at corporate, but it's starting to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Increased diversity at the highest levels would be a positive thing.

    Pros

    They have some great core values and works like a team. They are helpful and willing to work with you not against you.

    Cons

    Sometimes like with a big company the communication lacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be more improvement on training and also communicating. To be a manager does not mean for you not do anything, but you must set a good example on what to do.

    Pros

    Lots of training opportunities, and room for growth. Management cares about how the staff is doing and isn't just concerned with the bottom line.

    Cons

    I cannot think of a negative thing to say about this company. I would still be working for them if they had a position in my area of the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to keep doing what they are doing to retain the talent they have.
