    IT culture is more condescending than collaborative

    I worked at ARAMARK full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Financials look quite good. Not much competition from others within the same industry. Sizable moat, as Buffett would say.

    Cons

    Incredible how closely the IT staff mimics high school hierarchical culture. You are indirectly encouraged to be a part of the "in" crowd or be a victim of it. I witnessed the type of juvenile, condescending behavior from the engineers that you might expect from high school students. The seniors pick on the freshmen. This is particularly true if you happen to be unlucky enough to work for one of Aramark's child companies. I chose not to participate in the re-enactment of their adolescence. There is an alarming lack of desire to work together as professionals towards a common goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that the parent company / child company model encourages class-based attitudes, and adjust said attitudes accordingly. Insist on collaboration and professionalism.

    I have been working at ARAMARK full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Could have somewhat of a flexible schedule...when staffing was half-decent.

    Cons

    Management changed, and upper management promoted over-working the under-staffed staff. Led to errors that staff was blamed for (that's what happens when people get worked 10 hours per day for 7-8 days straight). Your opinion is rarely considered in any decision making that directly involves you , your job or your mobility within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and take their feedback seriously, then take action.
