I worked for sodexo for over 2 year before I was tupe across to a new company as their contract ended and was not renewed. Management were generally poor with no support and a bullying culture. If your face fits you were okay. Often short staffed. Management didn’t know how to do our jobs but instructed us on how to do them. Pay was ALWAYS wrong. Was promised lots but got nothing.
Pros
None
Cons
Pay always wrong

If you like cleaning, treating like dirt by management and staff. Then go for it. It’s absolutely rubbish for anyone looking for a fair job, I highly recommend working someplace else.

Work as a cleaning assistant for a new contract for them. Could never get hold of any type of management, hardly got any cleaning products, broken equipment that took 6 months to replace and was replaced with something that should have been binned instead. Didn't know if holidays you took were approved as you never got told so no cover so double work when went back afterwards when they did get cover they never done anything. Not a good place if you have mental health problems to work for.
Pros
The people in the building appreciated you
Cons
Bad management

Exhausting to work for, no clear strategy or direction. Senior leaders change so often its hard to keep up with who's who. So many different departments and everyone seems to be a 'Director' Very much a 'hands off style' of management
Pros
Have a diversity and inclusion policy and lots of great marketing material
Cons
They don't properly monitor their site teams approach to D&I

The people are amazing but management are lacking common sense and are not bothered about how their staff are treated. Very much a overworked and underpaid scenario
Pros
Working with some decent/honest people
Cons
Management are poor, Pay is poor with no incentive, No structural ladder to progress, Spoken to like dirt as you are treated like the scum of the hospital

I worked with Secure first of all as a Relief Officer and was then offered a full time contract after new Contracts Manager came in. I then transferred over to Sodexo. No issues with pay, good contracts although the odd site was stressful due to bad attitude from some guards. Overall a good 3 years spent with Secure/Sodexo. Would definitely work for them again if I ever return to security.
Pros
Good pay, overtime, paid on time, holidays covered no problem
Cons
Some guards attitudes

Too many rules to follow at work place, staffs are not helpful and rude. They rather spend more money on machinery than increasing employee's wages.
Pros
Good rest break
Cons
Mobile phones not allowed in the building

If you like working with no meaning or a life then sodexo is your go to place if you like being micro managed then you will love it at sodexo. Sodexo treats their staff like numbers on a piece of paper you dont matter and never will matter just do your job and make sure to scam as much money out of clients/customers as possible so sodexo can make a profit from there low ball contracts.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

If you have a family and young children don’t apply. I was given hours to suit childcare and then had a restructure and they gave me hours which wouldn’t suit my childcare. But gave hours to suit someone who doesn’t have young children. It’s a case of if your face fits your in. If not then you get treated badly

Long shifts often unsociable hours with no compensation, incompetent managers, money is alright. Managers constanly scaring the staff with the threat of losing their job, managers not following the safety guidelines and making up new jobs to 'keep you busy'. Would not recommend this job to another human!
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Free lunches are insufficient for a fully sized human
