    Pros

    Corporate structure, managing a unit gives you the feel of running your own company or companies. Huge network of people that you can find in one database. Food is always in demand.

    Cons

    Long hours and tough client expectations. Clients as in many other industries dictate majority of changes and actions that are taken. Some clients are excellent and some are tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue grow with trends.

    Pros

    The company's commitment to personal and professional growth is obvious along with their commitment to Quality of Life solutions for our clients and employees.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at the moment. Upper management change has been challenging at times, but change is usually good.

    Pros

    Supportive management, longevity encouraged, good benefits, team building and lots of training. No micromanaging.

    Cons

    Client and employer required attention on many things. Can be very busy at times. District wide initiatives that don't pertain to individual pieces of business.

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

    Pros

    I was sent to several training right away. one in New Jersey and one in Austin Texas. They were both pretty fun. I learned a lot about the company and really like what I was getting into. I have been a chef for many years and this is the first time I am able to have dinner at home with my family. Holidays and weekend off are unheard of as a working chef. But I am abel to have all of these things now.

    Cons

    Promotion policies only allow a 5% per grade raise, I went through a transfer and went up a pay grade but it did not meet the cost of living adjustment form one city to another. my raise was less than half of the cost of living difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When internal transfers happen take more consideration on cost of living differences and not just the grade difference. My house was $600 a month moved to a new city for this opportunity and my rent in the new area for the same house is $1200.
