    I have been working at Sodexo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company really does try to be progressive and give its best to the clients.

    Cons

    Individual people can destroy the best of intentions because they do not believe in the mission and values of the company but are only interested in self promotion. Salaries need to be upgraded and bonus system more fair and equitable. Women need greater opportunities and more equity in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure General Managers know and understand the mission and values of the company and actually use and support them. There is nothing worse than having to listen to your GM put your company down all the time and have to witness their complaining non stop to the client about it. Especially when I support the company and believe in what it is trying to accomplish. Start a concerted effort to promote women, much of the bad behavior by GMs and DMs are from men who are not willing to leave the 50's mentality behind.
