Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Aramark full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many opportunities for growth; company is trying to bring systems and processes into the future but are still far behind other companies in the industry

Cons

Work life balance is horrible due to massive layoffs in the past several years; annual 2-4% 401K match - if you do not make it to September every year - no match; insurance expenses continually rising while pay is not; annual raises max out at 2% every year regardless of performance; poor employee morale; former company culture that was treasured by employees has dissipated since new CEO took over a couple years ago

Advice to Management

Emphasis on employee recognition does not make up for lower pay and longer hours than other companies

    I have been working at Aramark full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a great culture of integrity and respect. Partnerships are valued with clients and vendors. There are many hard working people who take pride in what they do every day at all levels in the company.

    Cons

    It is very hard to advance your career once you reach the Food Service Director level. Not much opportunity for growth. It is also a very system regimented organization. Great if there is follow up and oversight, but all too often new programs or standards are left to "self activate" thus falling very short on the front line.

    Advice to Management

    Aramark needs to utilize the technology that is out there now and not wait to launch systems when the have already become obsolete. Performance needs to be valued over length of service in order to move above the competition. Find the best, retain the best, and reap the rewards.
