    Pros

    Great corporate standards. Salary is competitive but inconsistent. Benefits are good. Lots of quality training.

    Cons

    Sodexo accounts are like independent businesses. EEO issues can go unnoticed and unresolved.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about salaries. Separations from company should include an interview with human resources. EEO rules apply to all.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement
    When they have an asset, they retain that asset.

    Cons

    Benefits need work. Used to be good before Healthcare "reform", so it may not be their fault.
    Give you an abundance of vacation time but never an opportunity (at least at my level) to take it.

    Pros

    Consistent Employment
    Fair Pay in line with what I do as a Dietary Aide

    Cons

    Cliquish Environment
    One employee constantly complains to GM about co-workers, criticizes night shift workers and generally makes for an uncomfortable work environment. Have discussed with GM numerous times with no change.
    Poor communication from GM
    Poor policies resulting in sub standard patient reviews, am branded a malcontent for making logical suggestions on how to improve our unit.
    Was infected with a virus due to lack of timely warning by Sodexo and hospital as a result was sick over a weekend and due to hospital protocall missed 3 days of work. Had to use 3 vacation days to cover time due to their negligence. Considering legal action.
    Being listed on Safety Meeting reports that I had not attended.
    Pressed to purchase safety shoes while others were not.
    Being scheduled to work the more physically demanding K2 position for my entire tenure while another employee was given K1 due to a sense of entitlement. Whenever I approached the GM with concerns they were dismissed with a sarcastic comment

    Advice to Management

    I'd love to share my concerns and ideas on how to make our unit a more successful and profitable one. Spent majority of my career evaluating processes and how to improve unit performance, albeit in the automotive industry. GM seemed to blow off my interest because I hadn't been in Food Services. Regardless of industry, it's about maximizing your assets and profitability. Ours is and under performing unit and I'm not surprised! After 2 and a half years, I'm beat down and disgusted.

    Pros

    Sodexo cares about their employees and patient satisfaction. They also have benefits.

    Cons

    They do not control their private entities so management at a facility directly affects job satisfaction.

    I have been working at Sodexo

    Pros

    The job is easy not stressful but can get overwhelming at times when the club gets busy. You get an opportunity to meet some celebrities. My co workers are great people to work with.

    Cons

    Low pay. I feel that we do a lot especially in the bigger clubs especially when sometimes we are short staffed. Cleaning up after these entitled spoiled nasty customers sometimes is not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good team environment, if you work hard you'll get noticed. Beautiful location (I work at LMU) and almost all your clients are very friendly and fun to work with. Internationally recognized company with good benefits and 401k.

    Cons

    The schedule is sporadic by nature, it's all based around when events get scheduled. There can be slow weeks, but also extremely busy weeks. Be ready for lots of manual labor and a fast paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication, both from you to employees, and between employees themselves.
