    Pros

    Great place to grow and understand the food service business. Also, there are opportunities to move within the organization.

    Cons

    The company is separated by lines of businesses and you have to be familiar with different industries and there is no formal training.

    Pros

    The people are generally friendly, the job is simple, and the community can be a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Management changes often and is very awful as well as inconsistent. Employees do basically whatever they want because the management can be pushovers.

    Advice to Management

    It is preferable to promote within (in-house.) Unfortunately, twice since my starting this position, two people have been promoted to management from non-store areas of the company.

  9. Aramark succeeds at creating a professional environment in the food industry.

    Pros

    -A good work enviornment
    -Understanding management
    -Great location

    Cons

    -Unorganized management
    -Unfair distribution of tasks

    Advice to Management

    At the end of my time with Aramark, the company was undergoing a lot of changes which reflected in the disorganization of management. While they were great at communicating with their employees, the delegation of tasks were not fairly made. I'd recommend more reliable managers to oversee such a diverse team.
