    Pros

    In addition to working with great people, I have benefited from many of the company provided training opportunities. The additional skills and experience have allowed me to be considered for promotions for positions I wasn't qualified for before. I look forward to growing more with Sodexo.

    Cons

    Being such a huge company, it's easy to feel like a blip on the radar. You have to make an effort to stay connected with what's happening companywide by reading email updates and using the company intranet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering training and developement to all level of employees.

    all i ask is for management to be fair at all times . There's discrimination all the time . Somewhat unorganized in certain situations.
