    Pros

    Set schedule, good benefits, great co-workers

    Cons

    You are a contract employee so other employees you work with have different perks and benefits than you receive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all associates fairly. Rules do not just apply to some while others do whatever they want. It fosters disrespect and low morale.

    Sodexo is a quality of life company to its client/partners. It should be a quality of life company for its employees as well.

    Pros

    Hours and pay were decent

    Cons

    Horrible unprofessional management and co workers. You get no respect for the job you do. Most of the staff hides in closets and sit for hours while the actual working crew has to pick up the slack. The management stirs up most the trouble among employees, they have no educational background to back up there job status.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all Management and hire a new crew.
