    I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Sodexo quality and specifications are admirable. The resources for learning and certifications is abundant.

    Cons

    At the Unit or District level; Competitive (even up to "ruthless") practices are dominant. If you raise questions, alarms, or disagree you can expect to be ostracized, denied advancement or even demoted, denied pay increases, or undermined. Most of this is done verbally. Without any documentation. There is an underlying threat of termination.

    Advice to Management

    Find a location where the managers are most interested in customer service quality, and adherence to policy rather than self preservation that causes them to conspire.

    Several very helpful and connected district manager if you can get on their positive side. Extensive web database for employees.

    Sodexo is a service contract company and for most employees the financial market leading up to the contract renewal time frame dictates whether one's contract will be renewed or not. Sometimes buyouts by a larger company freezes or ends service contracts with a current client.
