    Pros

    Sodexo has fantastic programs to enhance employees skills and really invests in employee development. Too bad there aren't a lot of areas for advancement in HR. Sodexo is great at work/life balance. There is so much flexibility to contribute you keeping all aspects of your life in order. It also has fantastic people which contributes to a great culture.

    Cons

    The pay isn't market value.

    Pros

    There were always awesome people to work with. The customers were great as well. I enjoyed my time with this company before everything went down hill. I had a lot of fun and learned everyday. I didn't mind being on call or having to mandate people. I really truly was happy with this company for over a decade.

    Cons

    I worked with this company for 20+ years. I was loyal to them, however, they weren't loyal to me. I saw my first job with them get phased out for no reason even though I increased food sales every year along with customer satisfaction ratings that increased. My second job with them, I was promoted to GM and then demoted down to Food Supervisor which was just a fancy title for a cashier. I went from 50,000/yr to 12.50/hr. I don't see how that is fair to a veteran employee. I'm really just disappointed in them.
