Going bankrupt?

Current Employee - Chef Manager in Allentown, PA
Current Employee - Chef Manager in Allentown, PA

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

Pros

Seems to be a lot of openings, but hard to get promoted.

Cons

Such drastic "Summer Savings" directions from the corporate office. They told us not to order office supplies, don't print in color, double-side what you print, watch EVERY penny. Is this company going bankrupt? With so many senior leaders, maybe they should cut some of those positions instead of scrapping pennies from the units.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at all the senior management positions, are they all necessary? We need money in the units to take care of our customers appropriately.

    Former Employee - Food Service Worker in Phoenixville, PA

    I worked at Sodexo USA as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Co-workers were very approachable.
    -Lots of opportunities for advancement were available.
    -Tried to match the company culture as much as possible.
    -Managers were always there to assist.

    Cons

    There were not many cons to working here, I really enjoyed my time at this job although during my first few months working there we had a manager who did not do what he was supposed to and constantly blamed the workers. He was terminated because of this and someone competent replaced him.
