    I worked at Sodexo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Sodexo not only comes up with written mission statements and core values, they are demonstrated effectively through their efforts with employees, clients and the community.

    Cons

    I honestly did not have discord during employment with Sodexo. Of course, there were small qwerks that came about in daily operations that were to be expected.

    It was closed-nit. More of a Good-ole-Boy society. The potential to be an extraordinary organization is missed.

    I have been working at Sodexo

    Pros

    Large company and the cost of benefits is minimal, however, promotions are available if the game is plaid.

    Cons

    Ethical conduct at management level and above is passe. Unethical behavior flies out the window when honesty to clients is required. Prime example is the New York Education rebate fiasco.

    Managers do not move forward if they do not work within the span of covering us the financials shenanigans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the company/business the right way all the time without the coverups of wrong, deceitful financial business practices. Even big companies fall, it just takes time. Several companies manage their business the right way all the time, it works.
