    I have been working at ARAMARK

    Pros

    Great people with a lot of integrity, and respect for others. My business unit likes to have fun while working, and understands that having a little fun at work is good for creating and sustaining positive energy, along with social and emotional capital. I also feel I am compensated very well, which makes me appreciate Aramark all the more.

    Cons

    Inconsistencies with policies, processes, and messages across the business I support. However, with the new CEO in place, and a recent restructuring of AUS and Refreshment/Vending, I see that changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's time-consuming, but get out and meet the people more, as in town halls, focus groups, facility walks, etc.

    Current Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I have been working at ARAMARK full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel and make a position your own. Minor empowerment can become major successes. Felxible time to be in the office or to work from home in order to get projects completed. Employees are encouraged to support the Front Line Managers since the are the represenatatives of the organization.

    Cons

    With continued lay-offs and working to make the company a bit lean there are times when the lack of communication has some spinning their tails. Salaries are not fairly based, if you are a management favorite you then reap the rewards if not you get the consistant yearly 2% increase. Intradepartmental fighting brings down the team spirit. Under utilized talent pool.
