    Pros

    - Felt like my bosses cared when I had an issue. Always quick to respond to any questions or problems
    - Very big on diversity
    - I think upper management really tried to make work enjoyable/fun but didn't know how to relate to lower-level employees- often spoke to them like they were in elementry school
    - I believe this is a great company for those working at the corporate level. For those involved in operations, I don't thnk things are as nice.

    Cons

    - They told me they would promote me in 3 months and after 1 year it never happened
    - Have to wait a year and a half to apply to another position!!
    - Felt like directors and those not directly involved in the operation didn't care to hear our opinions and therefore didn't understand half of the things going on that they were criticizing

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time talking to lower level staff and finding out how to reach them


  2. Lots of opportunity, but if you are not in the food sector - little support

    Pros

    The company boasts an impressive range of contracts, Fortune 50 companies, Education, Military etc, so depending on your area there are lots of opportunities for growth

    Cons

    The company is food-centric, if you are not in food related role, such as IT, AV, Finance etc. then the company has little support for you. All the policies, raises, company communications are geared for kitchen staff. The company has the contracts in place where it could start pushing other services like Janitorial, Reception, AV, etc but is not activly pursuing this.

    Advice to Management

    Appoint a non-food business development leader to establish the for non-food related services at your existing contracts.
