    Pros

    decent pay upon hiring pay m-f work schedule

    Cons

    huge disconnect between hourly employees and management, negative experience with a compulsive micro manager nit picking everything and making me question myself professionally which i have never done prior. toxic work environment. high turnover rate in the 3 months i was there i cant even count all the people who came and went on there own terms including myself. overall there are so many people that get no appreciation in this company because they are so low in the food chain and those are the people who really work their butts off.

    Pros

    Sodexo provides the opportunity for advancement, work hard and it should pay off.

    Cons

    There was nothing I witnessed that would imply this is a bad company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Support the employees decision for growth in the company.

    I worked at Sodexo USA full-time

    Pros

    Set work schedule, decent benefit package for full time employees. Decent time off/ paid holiday system. Depending on department, flexible scheduling. Many over time/catering opportunities.

    Cons

    Upper management oblivious to the plight of the hourlies. Always at the mercy of supervisors that just didn't get it. Management didn't care what they did or how they supervised as long as we opened and closed every day and nobody died! Too much playing favorites and no one to talk to about it. Management was a "Do as I say, not as I do." The worst supervisors I have ever come across. Sodexo is usually a contractor and thus can lose their contract. Employees have no control over that.

    Advice to Management

    It's a new century, your 1970 style of management is no longer valid, get with the times. You gave us the hand book, follow it! You read the mission statement, live by it! Our unit was the 4th major contract loss in the last 5 years.

    I worked at Sodexo USA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get free meals while working. It was an alright job to have during school. Since, I worked in the cafeteria the hours were really good since I didn't have to work really late or really early.

    Cons

    Management was really disorganized. Head chef was mean and over-dramatic. Once, you see the food being made you lose interest in eating it. The kitchen was not very clean.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more guidelines on food and service standards. I think lower management could also use a refresher course on workplace harassment.

    Pros

    relatively easy place to work in if you know your tasks. And many opportunities for work.

    Cons

    Would be nice to have equipment for employees

    Pros

    The flexibility and free food is a major bonus here. That and the fact that it just isn't all that difficult.

    Cons

    Seriously, why can't we take tips? It's not like we're making an arm and then a leg, nor do we have benefits like Starbucks employees...tips should be a-okay

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect stellar employees when upper management continuously piles it on downhill.
