Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Many opportunities for growth; company is trying to bring systems and processes into the future but are still far behind other companies in the industry

Cons

Work life balance is horrible due to massive layoffs in the past several years; annual 2-4% 401K match - if you do not make it to September every year - no match; insurance expenses continually rising while pay is not; annual raises max out at 2% every year regardless of performance; poor employee morale; former company culture that was treasured by employees has dissipated since new CEO took over a couple years ago

Advice to Management

Emphasis on employee recognition does not make up for lower pay and longer hours than other companies

    I worked at ARAMARK full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great training programs and advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Large company, not too considerate of employees well being and turnover. More focused on SOP's and covering their own than to making the business work.

    I have been working at ARAMARK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They hire college graduates. The upper management seems like they have the right direction. Growing company

    Cons

    Supervisors believing in micromanagement and you can't hardly do your work without the on top of you. Management plays favorites. Poor starting pay, no bonuses. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management seems to have the right idea and direction. Lower management is completely messed up and needs an overhaul. The Nashville GBS branch is a new branch for Aramark and they are going to run it into the ground the way the management is handling things there.
