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

    Pros

    Great networking and career building opportunities -- I had the fortune to work with several great mentors. Your local account is what matter most - having a tight nit team makes the world of a difference, especially if you have a supportive District Manager as I did.

    Cons

    Pay Caps -- If you plan on making money working for Sodexo you will need to leave the company and return in a new position to get any significant increase. Merit increases are abysmal and bonus structure only apply at GM level and up.
    Work/Life -- Like all food service you will put in many hours in this business and if you do not love what you do you WILL burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Create incentive structure for unit managers -- there would be far more drive on the KPIs if there was one in place.
    Promote those looking for advancement and rework your salary cap structure to keep good talent.
