I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They for some reason have most accounts in this area.

Cons

Upper management is a joke. After changing the way they do business in order to work with the client, they only show up maybe once a year. After almost 25 years in the business world this company is by far the worst!! BE WARE they are liars!!

Advice to Management

Go and have relationships with the clients, After all isn't that what your paid to do? Oops, no, it is only about how can I screw everyone to make a buck.

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having some weekends off in the food service industry is a definite plus. Not very many late hours is as well. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    District managers and upper management are very unattached to the current business environment. Business decisions within Sodexo are rarely made on quantitative statistical analysis. It is all based on "ideas" with very little real world data to back up the ideas. In the healthcare sector, more and more is being asked of management while labor is continuously taken away. When there are issues, as a company culture, Sodexo does not investigate why there may be an issue, is it local, could it turn systemic, etc. Instead, they point there finger and say get it done. Much of the upper management came from within and had little experience from the outside world. They base things on how they used to be when they did it, not factoring in the ever changing environment and throwing their front line managers under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    District managers and VP's do very little to create a culture that creates excellence. The promise clients the world, knowing full well the cannot provide it, and throw the front line managers under the bus when they can't meet expectations because of false promises made to secure a contract. Specifically the Minnesota and upper midwest market.

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

    Pros

    I cant think of any.

    Cons

    In this Sodexo property management has a total inability to create a positive work environment, New employees feel micromanaged. There is no training material and as a result no proper training. The direction employees are given is done negatively.and by a peer not by management. Also, old employees are used inappropriately to mounter the new staff to the general manager. There is no teem building and working together or helping another person in a different department is looked down on by management. . They do not follow the Sodexo Mission statement in this property for years!

    Advice to Management

    Build relationships with the new staff. The new to staff needs to make the operation there own and to bring current management ideas into the place. Stop separating yourself from the staff at lunch and dine with them, see what they think. Stop listening to employee gossip in the office and start managing the staff. GET OUT OF THE OFFICE!. Say something positive and build on it., Focus on costumer service.you are loosing sales,
