    My experience of being in the employ of Sodexo has been nothing short of disastrous.

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Without wishing to sound facetious, I cannot honestly think of one. My own journey into Sodexo has been fraught with pitfalls and obstacles leaving me depressed and feeling totally inadequate.

    Cons

    I believed on my initial arrival at Sodexo that theirs was a progressive caring company, I was wrong, entirely so. I'd had no choice but to move to Sodexo from the company I was originally employed by. Allegedly, due to restructuring, I have had the misfortune since to have been a Sodexo employee for almost a year as a full time employee. I say full time though the truth is more likely to be that I show up, I go home, I get paid.

    I have been placed in the embarrassing position where no-one quite knows what to do with me. My original job description has been thrown out of the window and I have to go hunting for scraps to try and keep focussed on a day to day basis. I am of course pursuing a hopefully corrective course so that I might yet find gainful employment within Sodexo.

    Why would I want to remain at Sodexo you might ask, well with a combination of age, a specialised skill set and my place of work being close to home, I doubt if I could find anything else in the near (or distant) future that would suit me quite as well and so I am now fighting for the right to remain employed here but with a true job title and a firm job description. For the first six months after my move to Sodexo, I had incorrect salary deposits paid into my account which led to no end of problems trying to sort everything out with my creditors. In addition, I was, unfortunately, taken ill some months after my move and not once in that extended period of illness did anyone from the company even attempt a home visit to see if I was either okay or wanting.

    There are some very nice peolple working for Sodexo but it would undoubtedly appear that the higher up the corporate ladder they climb, the quicker they forget their own roots. I have seen manager's treating themselves at the company's expense to beverages and meals. Abusing their authority regularly by parking wherever and whenever they choose despite site regulations stating otherwise. I know of occasions when a manager will deliberately make a statement of falsehood to have an employee come in to work extra hours then deny that extra payment would be forthcoming or agreed. Instances too, where an employee's pay would be consistantly made to be erroneous simply because that employee was disliked by their manager.

    I have asked for conferences to discuss my future with Sodexo, meetings to define my role and for the opportunity to attend courses to render myself more suitable for any role they care to give me but even now, after all this time, my requests fall continually on deaf ears. I can only presume from their attitude that the managers do not want me here, if that is the case then why on earth did they take me on in the first place?

    Obviously not all of Sodexo is bad and I don't doubt that there are employees who have nothing but praise for their employer, unfortunately I am not one of them. I am not one of those who persist in or make a habit of moaning or refusing to work or to offer help and advice. I am a hard working, knowledgeable, friendly, highly experienced individual with an enormous amount to offer who, for some unknown reason, has been chosen to be trodden on by those who apparently feel they are something special. I personally feel totally aggrieved by my treatment whilst in the employ of Sodexo, as do many others on my behalf, but where do I go from here and just how long does it take management to figure out what I should be doing for my salary? I would very much like to find out, no matter how long it takes!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why should I need to advise the management, they are allegedly professionals, I don't doubt that some, if not most of them are quite competent, but if you should require some pearls of wisdom, it might be a very good idea to get your own house (management) in order before taking on staff and ruining their lives.
