    As an employee for nearly 6 years I felt supported on both personal and professional levels.

    Clinical Nutrition Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsSodexo understands and supports their Registered Dietitians by providing reimbursement for all credentials & memberships, as well as providing a network for Registered Dietitians to ensure best practice.

    ConsI was trying to relocate and was unable to obtain an internal position within my destination area. I had applied to several internal positions but never got past the phone screen phase. I had to leave the company in order to complete my relocation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease assistance for internal candidates to obtain positions when relocation is necessary/desired.

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

    I have worked for Sodexo for 9 years.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSodexo is the number one employer of dietitians. They compensate very well not only in salary, but the total rewards package. They put a lot into training and educating their employees and there is great opportunity for growth.

    ConsThey company restructures a lot and they have started to restrict pay increases, merit increases, etc. It is all part of staying viable as a business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I like the ideas and ways of doing stuff that sodexo stands for

    Clerical Assistant (Current Employee) Kennesaw, GA

    Prospromotion opportunities and benefits that help us get dental and medical and vision

    Consso people that get put into a leadership position are biased and think for themselves and not for the other people. More than half of the time people are scared to talk about whats been going on because we dont want to get fired or anything else. this is only one company place that i have seen it at but i am hoping that it is not everywhere
