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

Pros

Ambitious company with bold growth and innovative plans and structure. Very committed to gender diversity and expanding the career horizon of employees.

Cons

Very big, bloated structure. Very politcal. Not completely transparent. It can be hard to honest assessment of performance. They promote a Quality of Life philosophy, but don´t live it. They keep people in senior management positions who are awful from a relationship standpoint.

Advice to Management

Have the courage to get rid of people who don´t promote company values, in spite of their technical contributions.

    I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent
    Work life balance is decent

    Cons

    Benefits are worthless
    Layers upon layers of management
    No accountability
    24/7 work expectation
    Employees have little value beyond head count
    Cronyism abound

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Replace devisive 'leaders' with people of character and who understand that hard working and knowledgable professionals are to be valued. Streamline the endless layers of management. Cultivate employee growth by encouraging cross-training opportunities rather than stifling them per policy. Create an environment of respect through transparency, as opposed to the rampant distrust current leadership promotes.
