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

    Pros

    I stopped enjoying my job after a few years here, I don't trust management

    Cons

    We're a small contracted unit, having to meet the needs of our contractor doesn't always meet our need as a unit

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more, especially the ones that bust their butts the most....

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time

    Pros

    Not many, but you occasionally work with others who value positive and professional culture.

    Cons

    Sodexo is an old-school, hierarchical organization. Managers don't see team members as colleagues or peers. The IT organization is VERY flat, with zero room to grow...one or two postings for other positions, compared to hundreds in other companies.

    Work-life balance. A good slogan. However, my management thinks I should take a 30 minute lunch (I am salaried) and work 55 hours a week (again, I am salaried).

    All in all, I have worked for worse, but not many. If you are an IT professional, don't stunt your career by working here.

    Pros

    Stock options, 401k with a 3% match on your first 6%. Insurance coverage is good if you can afford it!

    Cons

    Hugh bureaucracy! Lots to offer but difficult to navigate the system. Unit managers are on their own with little or no support.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting from the middle causes the bottom to support the top more! Take care of the foundation or the roof will collapse!
