    I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We had fun working, everyone had a station to fix food for. We worked as a team, if someone got behind we all helped out. You work a 8 hour shift. Pay was not bad. I mean sometimes you worked hard to get your station ready to serve but part of the job.

    Cons

    Some of the recipes were complex, time consuming,

    Advice to Management

    Where I worked the management would jump in and work when needed. Would come around to make sure you were doing ok. Had no problems.

    Pros

    Great all inclusive work place.

    Eliminating senior level positions and reclassifying to entry level to pay less, expecting same quality of work.

    Look for other ways to cut budget than salaries, i.e. executive perks, liquor during meals, etc.

    Pros

    Great opportunities anywhere in the world! You can literally move across the country or the globe and still stay with the company even if you're not in management.

    Cons

    You have the moat negotiating room when you're getting hired in. You're pretty much locked in to cost of living raises after that.

    Advice to Management

    Upper/Senior management shouldn't be so afraid to speak to lower level staff. They could learn a lot from them

    I worked at Sodexo (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Weekly pay check necessary for survival.

    Cons

    Every day is stressful where hardest workers overlooked and buttkissers have all the glory. No hope for diversity either. Dripping with racist machochauvanism. No regard for clientele either only egos and numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Dismantle the billionaire boys club attitude and perhaps your company can accelerate to the heights of your contemporaries.
