Pros

Comparable pay to other similar organizations. Employee retail discount program. Encountered one decent district manager during my tenure with Sodexo.

Cons

Lack of opportunity to promote and develop hourly associates to salaried roles of greater responsibility. Sodexo hires more from the outside rather than look within the organization for advancement opporunities. Lack of opportunity to promote managers within the organization to roles with greater responsibility. Little to no work life balance. Promote/hire in managers without the regulatory required credentials (CDM, DTR, or RD) for a Healthcare/Senior Services GM role when it is stated as a requirement on Sodexo's job posting.

Advice to Management

Look from within and grow your own in terms of advancement and job placement in your organization. Give your associates and Managers the tools and ability to grow, you will have a loyal following.

    Pros

    benefits are good, vacation, sick days, and holiday pay

    Cons

    No one paying attention to who works and who doesn't
    Disorganized kitchen help
    Everyone does what they want and don't do what they don't want to.
    Management hire's family friends that make up lies about other employees they dont like, just to get them fired. Some employees just sit around and milk the clock and dont get told anything.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who is doing the job they were hired to do. Pay attention to who is a dedicated worker and who is there just for a pay check. If your basic products aren't being ordered right and days there isn't the product in the house, check who isn't doing there job right. Your deliveries are for what you ordered, if you dont receive it, its because who ever does the ordering didnt order it!!

    Former Employee - Dining Room Attendant

    Pros

    - Worked in a friendly environment
    - Easy to get workable scheduled hours
    - Relations between employees were friendly
    - Easy work

    Cons

    - Told raises were possible but then they explained there was a low budget and raises would not occur that year
    - Upper management got huge bonuses while employees were denied any raises

    Advice to Management

    If employees don't get raises and they instead get their jobs cut there is something wrong with that! Mangers should not get bonuses for not managing the budget effectively.
