    I have been working at Sodexo part-time

    Pros

    I love working at the football and concerts and the good about Sodexo is they reward their staff when the have done a really good job, not a lot of employers recognise their staff like Sodexo do.

    Cons

    zero hour contract and hours vary on a 24/7 basis

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good corporate social responsibility programme. Lots of employee recognition.

    Cons

    Big corporate with all of the hassle and inefficiency that comes with it. Pay is standard for facilities, but as such a large employer, they are actively flattening payscales in the industry. Talk a lot about work life balance, but don't follow it up with any meaningful action.
