    I worked at Sodexo part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    --Wonderful management and team at the University of Pittsburgh
    --Given the opportunity to learn more
    --Flexibility for students and their exam schedules
    --Free meals for certain shifts!
    --Very understanding and accommodating team, but I suppose it depends on which team you're working for

    Cons

    --Can get very repetitive after a while
    --While the student worker life was great, I know some of the regular employees might not have been as satisfied with management.

    I worked at Sodexo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a job. The company itself may be good, but this office has no pros.

    Cons

    Everyone who takes this job quits soon after because the HR Manger treats the employees so poorly and hire management plays down the severity of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into this unit's HR office.

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free meal with shift. Never a boring day always busy,

    Cons

    Not flexible, negative work environment, no room for growth, policies not followed regularly, micromanagement was the dominant leadership style used, and horrible benefits packages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to be better managers. Educate yourselves on the negative effects of micromanaging staff. Be nice, courteous, and respectful to staff. Show staff that they are valued and appreciated. Understand that you need to follow policies all the time and not only do this when there is something for you to gain out of it.
