    I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There really are not a lot of Pros to working at Sodexo. My job was outsourced to Sodexo, so I didn't have much choice.

    Cons

    I made a stupid, and completely unintentional mistake and broke a zero tolerance policy, I was fired. Without taking all things into consideration, or even closely looking into the case, I was terminated. Complete lack of compassion on Sodexo's part.
    After working for Sodexo for 1 year, they still had problems with payroll every single week. Their communication skills have much to be desired.
    Their benefits package is one of the worst in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes humans make mistakes. A little compassion, and perhaps a second chance, could go a long way toward making Sodexo a better company.

    I worked at Sodexo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck, but every job does that. Guaranteed hours, few surprises in workload. The labor is extremely simple and straightforward.

    Cons

    Constant harassment, Overly hostile work environment, Union doesn't care about employees, employees belittled, patronized, threatened on a daily basis, unrealistic expectations of employees, unfair asynchronous treatment depending only upon how much you brown nose management. Incidents involving higher ups (harassment of new hires, less seniority employees) quickly swept under the rug and forgotten about.

    Advice to Management

    Drop steelworkers, they cant mediate their way out of a paper bag. Stop talking down to employees and wondering why you can't keep them. Make sure your "team leads" are qualified and aren't harassing employees behind your back. Understand that people are human and when theyre doing the best they can, instead of threatening and telling them how worthless they are, take note of what they have done or you'll soon find yourself one, two, three, or in the case of my particular sodexo environment... four employees down and off to greener pastures in a short time span.
