    Pros

    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.
