    Former Employee - Catering Supervisor 

    I worked at Sodexo full-time

    Pros

    This is a great job if you like to be on the move and typically stay away from desk jobs. You can meet a lot of people and network as well.

    Cons

    There can be long hours and expectations from management can get lost in translation when working events offsite.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    In unit management has poor quality of life .. Long hours and loss of vacation time. The is no support from out of unit management. Manage down really doesn't work so well . Lack of response in unit needs that are delivered to Senior leadership .. Sodexo claims to offer quality of life for employees but its virtually non existent. Long term employees are not valued and not heard .. Like other corporate companies It comes down to the dollar and not the people.
