Pros

Great training working in the food industry. The standards that are placed on safety and help create an understanding how all food services should be run. For anyone looking to own their own food establishment should work for Sodexo and take what they learned with them, they will own and run a successful and healthy business.

Cons

I found it is very difficult for advancement in the corporation. Personal success in the company is based on who you know rather than what you know; it seems to be a tall, linear, chain of command and it becomes difficult to move horizontally. For people looking for advancement, they will have to move horizontally to a new location where a position may open up above them. When there are open positions in management it seems that the company looks elsewhere before looking at their own work force.

Advice to Management

There are a lot of intelligent, well organized, and strong decision makers in the lower management of the company. Even general employees sometimes seem more competent than the managers, find these employees and promote them.

    Being a contract management company, you take the chance of being out of a job after a contract is up if you don't want to move out of the area.
