Some very small disappointments, I have been with them many years and received many awards and lots of recognition. The biggest disappointment has been that there isn't enough work in the state I live in.

Be assured that as a manager of Sodexo, work like balance does not exist, regardless of what they might promise. This is usually highly dependent upon the unit you are in, however, from my experience its all hands on deck all the time. I would generally get in about 7am and expect to leave about 6pm, (that's if a report wasn't due ASAP or an upcoming audit OR an evening catered event) not including any work I might take home with me. If you are lucky, there might be a full staff for both frontline and manager, if not, you will be doing their job and some in order to please the client. Because if the client isn't happy, no one is.

At my first account, Sodexo lost the contract, which meant we were immediately required to find new employment or travel. They will not simply transfer you to a new facility. You must apply and see if they hire you or not. Luckily I found a job...almost 2 hours from my home. I was supposed to be free to apply to work closer, but that door closed rather quickly.


While employed at my second unit, I was diagnosed with cancer, and as a result requested reasonable accommodations which was denied. This forced me to quit my job, DESPITE this being requested by my physician. They did not care that I needed temporary flexibility despite having worked 50+ hour works for nearly 2 years (AND worked on FMLA AND returned too soon to attend a required meeting). They even had the audacity to ask me why I felt I needed to work less. I could have complained and been made an example of, but when battling cancer its not quite worth it.

Thank you for your feedback and for your service at Sodexo! Due to the nature of the work in the service industry, you're correct that days can be long and / or fast-paced. However, as you mention, many of our employees report enjoying the ability to make a difference in the lives of other people on a daily basis, so I hope that this helps create a balanced experience for you and others who may join the team in the future. - Autumn A., Sodexo USA Careers Community Manager

Sodexo is a large, multi-national company with plenty of room for growth and mobility. Sodexo's focus on diversity and inclusion make it an excellent company to work for as you experience ideas from multiple different angles. Sodexo also prides itself on trying to focus on work/life balance, though that can depend on the account you have landed at. There are a ton of resources that you can pull from and learn from, but the size of the company can also make you feel like a small fish in a large pond. Sodexo offers excellent benefits and plenty of Paid Time Off.

This was the start of an extremely challenging 3-4 years, from retuning to the UK in the commercial services sector; and following 24 years in the military delivering logistical services.

The beginning was great; but with the ever changing commercial challenges i quickly learnt the harsh reality of working as a contractor in the services sector

The customer was being challenged to make considerable efficiency savings and as the incumbent contractor we were challenged to deliver this but maintain standards

Good company to move up and be promoted from, the promote from within, and encourage learning and hourly moving to management.

I worked for Sodexo for over 25 years and I wish I had left 10 years before I did. I started out when it was Marriott and I always saw myself retiring from the company. It was a great part of my life for many years.

In the end though, it was simply too much distrust of the front line, in the unit employees and management team - those who were working hard to earn Sodexo its profits.


I always thought that hard work and taking care of the customer would reward me in the future, but what I found instead was that the more money you gave back to the company only made the company want more the next year and it became a year after year cycle. Eventually, you wouldn't be able to produce an increase and that was seen as a negative.


Corporate support degenerated over the years. For instance, human resources used to be just that - a resource you could count on to help you take care of the staff and the unit, but at the end, they were no longer helping staff. Instead, they were taking direction from the legal team and there was no "human" left in human resources. For example, when they rolled out taking benefits away from higher education employees based upon a different full-time scale, I saw the impact this was having directly on the front line staff who served our customers year after year and counted on those benefits. They were the lowest paid employees in our company and they were the ones hardest hit. Eventually the company reversed it's decision, but this is something that should have never happened to begin with.


Senior leadership was never stable. They were quickly

I appreciate you taking the time to share and for your time of service at Sodexo. As you mention, it can definitely be a challenge and much of the work is behind the scenes or involves things most people are unaware of. However, I hope you did not feel it was a thankless job, as the patients, families and clients we serve couldn't get by without you and our Environmental Services teams. Thank you again, and if you're ever interested in returning, I encourage you to join our alumni community Reconnexions. - Autumn A., Sodexo USA Careers Community Manager
