    Pros

    In addition to working with great people, I have benefited from many of the company provided training opportunities. The additional skills and experience have allowed me to be considered for promotions for positions I wasn't qualified for before. I look forward to growing more with Sodexo.

    Cons

    Being such a huge company, it's easy to feel like a blip on the radar. You have to make an effort to stay connected with what's happening companywide by reading email updates and using the company intranet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering training and developement to all level of employees.

    Pros

    I love the work environment and creating a quality product. I have also enjoyed working with the college students at Weber State University and helping them achieve their goals.

    Cons

    None so far. I have worked for Sodexo in Ogden Utah at Weber State University for 3 1/2 years and loved it. My husband is being stationed in Phoenix Az, so we have to move and I would like to continue with Sodexo.

    Advice to Management

    I have worked for great management thus far, so it would be very difficult for me to give and constructive advice. Sodexo is a well-run organization that I've been glad to be a part of.

    Sodexo has a lot of programs for their employees, such as discounts and life style help. In terms of work, employees will be thrown head first in the fire and for the most part will learn many different skills.

    Cons

    Upper management is not supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Uplift those who are going above and beyond. Respect what we do and what we go through in order to make it happen!
