    Pros

    The lower management people form a cohesive network that is a great support system for other managers. The front line employees make the company run.

    Cons

    Total lack of respect from upper management for the compentent managers and chefs. They make broad judgements on accounts with out actully spending any time in the field seeing the daily issues faced by the front line employees.

    Pros

    The pay was rather good compared to other jobs in the industry although there were no bonuses of any kind.

    Cons

    Aramark is all about kickbacks and all roads lead back to that; every vendor is mandated by Aramark standard and usually charge much more than you could get anywhere else so that the company (or higher up) gets their graft. They also charge for clients to use Aramark exclusive programs that do little to benefit the client. As a Manager you spend an unbelievable amount of time proving that you're doing your job as opposed to actually doing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more about actually managing the hospitals, schools, sports arenas, etc. than making money from vendors and paperworking your managers to death.
