    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Lots of opportunity for women, but still a bit of a good old boys club. Top notch training programs. Freedom to run my account as I like.

    Salary could be better, but I'm not unhappy with it. Working on my work/life balance. Sometimes work a 6 days week. More often than not work a 12 hour day.
