    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I work for the corporate segment, it is a great company to work for. there's a good balance between work/personal life. There's been flex time opportunities.

    Cons

    There is more focus on frontline employees, which makes sense because it is about our clients, however, it's hard to get any career growth when you're working on the back end of Sodexo.
