    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Exempt employees start with 3 weeks of Vacation, plus holidays and 3 personal days. The health insurance and 401k seem pretty standard. I work in schools so I enjoy the seasonal aspect and that there is down time where taking vacation time is very doable.

    Cons

    Sodexo is not very competitive on pay, the company is slow to adapt new technology, and it's so large that at least in our segment I feel like we get left out of the conversation so when new technology is integrated, it either doesn't fit my needs very well, or I'm not really sure what it is for.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology at the unit level, not just technology that is functional at the VP level and higher. There is a lot of training on diversity, but not enough on unit level operations. The live training can be good, but often the trainers are behind the curve and aren't as prepared as they should be.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of room for career growth. Work balance is decent if the proper staff is in place. Workweek is typically 42 to 48 hours.

    Cons

    Account retention in this area seems to be low in the past decade. High level management seemed to be non-existent for several years at this account until it was too late; the client was already upset and looking for change when the proper personnel were eventually put into place. I would only recommend if the position is in an account that seems to have a good relationship with their client, but that can be difficult to observe as a potential hire.

    Advice to Management

    Work on accounts that we currently have to grow those relationships.
