Just a few issues

Catering Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sodexo USA full-time for more than a year

ProsA good corporate environment, and some good planning

ConsChef's that refuse to cook (just thaw and serve), Chef's that refuse to push to create a great program, poor marketing, and poor recipe/menu ideas. Ohh, and I received the smallest pay increase I have ever had in my entire life (since age 17)...a wopping $750/yr increase...that is horrible.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting people just becuase they already work for the company. I was told by many recruiters that I would not be considered for a position because I was not a "current" employee, that they always give current employees priority, and that my skills and experience were far greater than any of the other applicates due to this. I had to apply for a position that "current employees would not be interested in", just to get my foot in the door.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
