    I have been working at ARAMARK

    Pros

    Great compensation and organization for learning and growing as an employee. Broad lines of business for relocation availability and promotions.

    Cons

    Support needs ot be more stream-lined for transition periods. Sr. managment seems to be spread too thin to provide necessary support at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing for better results at the root causes.

    Pros

    Enjoyable job atmosphere with ever-growing add-on responsibility. Strong corporate involvement. Strong management and financial controls, with focus upon strong leadership, quality control and customer service.

    Cons

    Human Resources at all levels is known for knee-jerk reactions, especially in response to unfounded customer complaints, or situations unfavorable to the company bottom line of profitability. Human Resources will "investigate" at management request any seemingly or alleged management misconduct, seek to control the flow of accurate, truthful and reliable
    information to upper management to facilitate their range of control within the organization
    hierarchy. The manager(s) unfortunate enough, despite absolutely no wrong-doing, having displayed nothing less than stellar performance at any time based in part but not limited to
    solid, written/documented customer satisfaction letters and evaluations combined with excellent to outstanding ARAMARK documented performance evaluations, is hung-out to dry, as a scape goat-essentially for all practical purposes BLACK LISTED-despite the negative implications. The moral and corporate responsibility to defend it's employees from wrong-doing in this situation doesn't enter the picture. Sadly enough, those in position of authority to step forward and correct a wrong-from the Human Resource leadership, to the District Managers, to the Group Presidents, and higher-remain silent. Sadly enough, this experience isn't isolated or limited to the type experience mentioned here. The arena extends beyond into contract renewal, contract bidding, and labor relations.
