    What starts out as good turns in to a nightmare after a couple years.

    Pros

    It's a job during the bad economy. You meet new people because the turn over rate is so high. Even in a small account. The ones who stay are pretty solid workers and a couple of them are good people.

    Cons

    They try to run the company by fear and intimidation. It is hard to get anything to HR because the first two levels of management don't listen and hide any report they get. They have a policy that is only followed if it benefits their needs. A raise at this place is near impossible to get and when it does come don't expect much. It is the most unappreciative company to work for no matter how much you carry an account while management that does not have a clue how to manage people takes the credit.

    Advice to Management

    Check up on some smaller accounts and ask the employees to give their management a job review. Drug test some of these accounts you might be surprised on who fails and how many fail.

    Pros

    Sodexo has a large number of accounts all over the US and internationally including Schools, Hospitals, and Corporate sites. If you fit in with their culture there is a wide range of options for advancement and/or relocation.
     There are many talented good hearted people working as mangers and other senior positions on the site based level.

    Cons

    SEnior management even at regional levels seems to be out of touch with the practical day day needs and realistic concerns of providing good safe food and consistent food to clients. Perfectly good product your customers have come to love can be removed with no warning from your shopping lists. Leaving servers at a lose to explain why their favorite menu item suddenly has changed for the worse.
    There defiantly seems to be an inner-siders old boy network at management levels as mangers with lacking skills sets or records of theft from account or clients get shuffled safely off to other positions

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on lofty but empty rhetoric about opportunity for all and blind attempts to raise profits by saving pennies here and there with out considering the consequences.
    How much money got spent on rebranding by removing the 'h', was it enough to justify switching from a functional payroll service to one that could not handle the basic tasks like making sure health care benifets were covered for employees who get temporary layoffs due to for scheduled school vacations at their job site?
