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

    Pros

    I have been with the company less then 6 months and so far they have really seen my hard work and potential for growth. Everyone I work with was warm and welcoming my first couple weeks and the managment still makes sure to trll me what an asset to the company I am.

    Cons

    The only thing I would say is the way the vacation time works. You accrue all year but can not use it until it "vests" on January 1st. So even though you accrue with every paycheck you can't use it until the 1st of the following year. That only goes for hourly employees, I hear salaried employees are different.

    Advice to Management

    The management I work dirrectly with are great, always encouraging and friendly. If all management in the company is like that I could see how it became so successful.
