    I have been working at Sodexo as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is very accommodating to your schedule which makes this a wonderful opportunity for students. The Event Sales team will also include you in all aspects of planning an event from responding to sales inquiries, creating proposals and floor plans, and the overall set-up and tear-down.

    Cons

    If there are too many interns at once with little work to get done, the environment can become monotonous and frustrating at times.

    I have been working at Sodexo part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was more than fair. The opportunities for benefits, tuition reimbursement, etc was readily available. Management was always available.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of room for advancement. At least there was not a lot of room for advancement in my area. Also much of the work I did was seasonal.

    Pros

    The money was excellent. The work environment was pleasant and management was easy to communicate with. If your plan is to be a long term employee they have many helpful programs.

    Cons

    There is favoritism with some of the management and certain employees. During events management is not always as accessible as necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You do a great job at recognizing employees for achievements and the opportunity for effective communication is common. Some employees are shown quite a bit of favoritism.

    I have been working at Sodexo

    Pros

    All I can say is that it's a job in a bad economy. People do have to eat so it is probably not a job that will go away.

    Cons

    I've only worked at one Sodexo location so I don't know if it is any different at other but the pay is poor, the manager never has a good word for anything and you have to work six years before you get more than 5 days vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't hurt to say someone has done something good on occasion. Constant criticism helps no one and only leads to constant turnover of staff.

    Doesn't Recommend
