Pros

Great place to work for a work/life balance...however the salary ranges are not the most competitive. You have to negotiate your own salary or they will low ball you.

Cons

Have to relocate for just about any kind of promotion...not very good in all cases. Spend time to inspect and evaluate the company and the job before you decide to join. It can be a very good job if it is what you are looking to do. The company used to spend a lot more money on the employees, but these are hard times...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please find more ways to thank the FLM's and FTE's for all they do. We used to do regional meetings....

    I have been working at ARAMARK

    Pros

    Quality of Life. Coming from restaurants and crazy, ever changing shift schedules, I now work Monday through Friday. I have the ability to leave if something comes up and family is first throughout Aramark. I started Aramark with 26 paid days off per year (10 holidays, 6 personal days, 10 vacation days) and left a major chain restaurant after 10 years with 15 paid vacation days off per year...

    Cons

    It's still the food serive industry and many times you have to get in the trenches and cook, restock items, run catering orders and so on. That's with any small business though...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all corporate policies and programs apply to every account. Many of them are productivity killers and do not add value to every account.

    Good to travel and figure out what your passion is, poor for long term career growth.

    Pros

    You can really move around if you want - there are multiple lines of business (uniforms, education, higher education, business services, sports and entertainment, facilities services and more) in many areas and even countries. You could even work at the Olympics. If you are not sure what your passion is there is a great chance to try out many things.

    Cons

    There is never enough staff or money to do anything well, so your always close to budget and working long hours and working hard. There is a poor work life balance if you don't draw a firm line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop going public / private and just stay private! Also, let each line of business manage its own money so it can re-invest its profits and grow - instead of handing the money to the lines of business doing poorly hurting the good LOBs and not forcing the mis-managed LOBs to do better or fail (we're large enough we can trim some stuff if it's always a money sink hole).
