I worked at Sodexo as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Develop strong work ethic skills, time-management under times of stress while working major events.

Cons

When volunteering at major events, there is a rare chance of being able to take a break since there are always customers needing to be served from start of event to its conclusion.

Advice to Management

Improve terms of communication towards employees in instruction of what exact task needs to be done.

    I have been working at Sodexo part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training working in the food industry. The standards that are placed on safety and help create an understanding how all food services should be run. For anyone looking to own their own food establishment should work for Sodexo and take what they learned with them, they will own and run a successful and healthy business.

    Cons

    I found it is very difficult for advancement in the corporation. Personal success in the company is based on who you know rather than what you know; it seems to be a tall, linear, chain of command and it becomes difficult to move horizontally. For people looking for advancement, they will have to move horizontally to a new location where a position may open up above them. When there are open positions in management it seems that the company looks elsewhere before looking at their own work force.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of intelligent, well organized, and strong decision makers in the lower management of the company. Even general employees sometimes seem more competent than the managers, find these employees and promote them.
