I worked at Sodexo part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Meal plan of free food, pretty good starting wage of $9.00 and automatic raise after you work for awhile, my manager was extremely sweet and friendly, relaxed environment.

Cons

Apathetic employees, very low opinion from students at the University, (but more so because of the choice of Sodexo in comparison to others.)

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

    Pros

    Sodexo provides great management training, values employee work-life balance, promotes employee network groups and mentoring programs, encourages career growth and mobility. The commitment to strong ethics is evident across the company, from units to senior leadership.

    Cons

    It's a very large company, so there's a significant learning curve. There are a lot of divisions to get to know and processes to learn as a new employee. With so many different units, there is feeling of working in silos and a lack of connection with the company as a whole, unless you make the effort to connect through the networking or mentoring groups.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on-boarding for in-unit managers

    I worked at Sodexo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food during breaks, people are respectful and friendly, and it always smells good.

    Cons

    It can be a bit dangerous around lot of large-scale kitchen equipment. Managers always want you to worker over time, and it's not ideal for a student who prioritizes studying.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate of how tired your part time student employees can get! Be nice.
