    Pros

    I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for this company!

    Cons

    The manager was constantly drinking on the job. He often had alcoholic rages towards certain employees and he was very difficult to work with. Employees aren't friendly and are lazy. Management tells you one thing, but then say another. They also give you more work than you can handle within a certain time limit and the pay isn't good.

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

    Pros

    Two of the chefs are great teachers, patient and kind. Most of the people who work there are returning for their second season so are knowledgeable about how a prep kitchen works. HR is strong and responsive.

    Cons

    The Executive Chef is a bully and likes to call people out in front of the rest of the staff, ruling by fear. Not inspiring to his people at all. There are also too many chiefs and not enough indians so frequently you receive direction from multiple chefs, resulting in mass confusion. Low pay. Sometimes really tough working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other before communicating with your people. Huddle up and let the direction come from one source, not 3 or 4.
