Pros

There is flexibility in location and divisions of the company. There is a large network to exchange information and ideas which is helpful. They have an expert for everything or they have consulted with an expert and the information is typically available.

Cons

It's a large company easy to feel like a number depending on the position. The compensation could be better - staff hired directly by a client makes more that ARAMARK is willing to pay, most of the time. Some big wigs may have forgotten what it is like to work in the field and the expectation when they add additional tasks is unreasonable because time precious.

Advice to Management

Show your employees that they are a great supporting cast. Show the employees that corporate listens to what they have to say and wants to work to make resolutions. Pay your employees competitively even if it affects the profit because the employees performance.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work Life balance is ideal: I've never seen a better place from that aspect
    Lower level management is always willing to listen
    With the team I'm on, there is plenty of work and it seems to be growing

    Cons

    Management listens but nothing ever seems to get done; a big show is made of Employee Satisfaction complete with a Gallop Poll survey, but that's where it ends
    The compensation is below average
    Zero recognition or employee appreciation

    Advice to Management

    Bring the compensation up to market standards and stop complaining about the National Healthcare Plan causing problems for Aramark. If you have the money to travel all over the country, surely you have the money to show some appreciation to the employees by having a lunch once in a while.
