    Advice to Management

    Visit a unit , See what being in operations is about. Listen to your employees and address concerns as opposed to giving a survey that rarely results in any change. You are losing good talented dedicated team members , both hourly and in unit management .. Pay attention to the real value you have .. people that make it happen daily

    Pros

    Plenty of vacation time, and good benefits

    Cons

    Long hours are expected, with new accounts new managers aren’t always given proper training, and hiring frontline staff takes on average a month after the interview process has begun

    Set new managers up for success with more training and expedite the hiring process for frontline staff

    I worked at Sodexo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No pros at all avoid where possible

    Cons

    Unfair, if you are not a long serving Member of Sodexo forget it. Dont treat managers fairly, dont take into account long service. HR a joke and dont even think about asking for support as you wont get it.No recognition at all for long hours, time spent doing other peoples jobs etc. Dont work for them if you dont have to.

    Advice to Management

    Have some humanity
