I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A good corporate environment, and some good planning

Cons

Chef's that refuse to cook (just thaw and serve), Chef's that refuse to push to create a great program, poor marketing, and poor recipe/menu ideas. Ohh, and I received the smallest pay increase I have ever had in my entire life (since age 17)...a wopping $750/yr increase...that is horrible.

Advice to Management

Stop promoting people just becuase they already work for the company. I was told by many recruiters that I would not be considered for a position because I was not a "current" employee, that they always give current employees priority, and that my skills and experience were far greater than any of the other applicates due to this. I had to apply for a position that "current employees would not be interested in", just to get my foot in the door.
