Manager (Former Employee), New York, NY – August 19, 2014
Pros: culture, job security
Cons: time off, work/life balance
Sodexo is a good company to work for if you do not like to hit the books. As an organization they value experience and management skills. As a college graduate I do not think I can go back and work for the company because my skills would not be used on a daily basis. The senior managers do not value technology and some of the senior operations managers – more... still manage their employees with fear. – less

An acceptable company to work for; the only issues with this employer was my work checks constantly coming up short; and me having to wait until the next pay period to be compensated, which caused my bills to constantly have late payments made to them.
