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

    Pros

    Having some weekends off in the food service industry is a definite plus. Not very many late hours is as well. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    District managers and upper management are very unattached to the current business environment. Business decisions within Sodexo are rarely made on quantitative statistical analysis. It is all based on "ideas" with very little real world data to back up the ideas. In the healthcare sector, more and more is being asked of management while labor is continuously taken away. When there are issues, as a company culture, Sodexo does not investigate why there may be an issue, is it local, could it turn systemic, etc. Instead, they point there finger and say get it done. Much of the upper management came from within and had little experience from the outside world. They base things on how they used to be when they did it, not factoring in the ever changing environment and throwing their front line managers under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    District managers and VP's do very little to create a culture that creates excellence. The promise clients the world, knowing full well the cannot provide it, and throw the front line managers under the bus when they can't meet expectations because of false promises made to secure a contract. Specifically the Minnesota and upper midwest market.

    I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They for some reason have most accounts in this area.

    Cons

    Upper management is a joke. After changing the way they do business in order to work with the client, they only show up maybe once a year. After almost 25 years in the business world this company is by far the worst!! BE WARE they are liars!!

    Advice to Management

    Go and have relationships with the clients, After all isn't that what your paid to do? Oops, no, it is only about how can I screw everyone to make a buck.
