    Pros

    Wonderful corporate standards, opportunities to educate yourself within the company's self learning systems.

    Cons

    No real auditing of the accounts to see if they are following Aramark standards from top to bottom. My account has some real bad apples that are going unchecked, not being removed and spoiling the barrel, soon to affect our account bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Peel back some layers to see what is really going on beyond the surveys.

    Cons

    Poor District Manager Support. Pay unbalance between managers.
