Great managment
I really enjoyed my time at Sodexo. My manager was extremely good to work with , very encouraging , helpful and experienced. The company is very keen for employees to advance in their field through courses and encouragement. The only downfall is the salary . Even when you advance and gain more experience they are happy to give you extra work but no extra in the form of wages.

Horrible company to work for, period.
Terrible company to work for, over worked and completely underpaid. Management are rude and ignorant and like to bully their staff promise them the world and actually give you nothing but pure grief. Stay well clear of this company if you want to keep your mental health on the right end of the scale. The magaer in navan branch is a rude obnoxious devious creep

Alright
Sodexo is just an OK place to work, very hard to get management to agree to anything, no courses offered for advancement, yet they expect you to do work that you are not trained for.

Ok
Co-workers were friendly and I loved working with them. Supervisor was fantastic. But the site manager.... Never should have been a manager. I worked odd hours and whenever I asked for help I got told I wasn't busy enough, and cooking wasn't the only thing I had to do. If you have a good manager it's a brilliant place to work but I didn't have that

Don't go there
Night shift paid same as day shift but have to stay longer (no over time) constant abuse from management and other workers, work is hard and customers are very rude, one half an hour break during whole shift but you still have to serve customers who come up to the till. Unwanted advances from other colleagues were brushed under the rug when reported

Terrible people to work for. Soul destroying.
Stay away from this company. They lie about everything. If you want to be exploited this is the company for you. The managment is non existant. They pick people for those positions who are uneducated and ignorant. The objective of this company is to place both your phyisical and mental health in danger. They are a disgrace.
Pros
NO Pros
Cons
Bad wages, Bad managment, Poor working conditions.

Lunatic asylum
The main problem was management. It was like working for a schizophrenic. You never knew what person you would meet each day. No support from HR. She turned staff against each other. The turnover on staff was shocking but when I addressed this fact I was told it wasn't high. (20 plus in 3 years and still going) I was often reduced to tears whilst working
Pros
Free food
Cons
Management and paperwork

Not a bad company to work for.
Overall I enjoyed my experience . I learned so much especially how to work well as part of a team. I learned the importance of communication while working as part of a team for it work at full potential.
The importance of how to work well under health and safety and working safely Can have an impact on work collegues.

Good hours-r
Personally the place that Ive worked in the hours were great , always have your weekends off (also depends witch location you work in). You also get free breakfast and lunch! Witch was good.
Sometimes felt a bit unorganized .

Also , this company DOES NOT give pay rises and doesnt matter how many years you work there, the only way to get a pay rise is to get a promotion. So lets say the rate of pay for FSA/Baristas goes up each year, the person who gets the position that year that it went up will be paid more than people who’ve worked there for 4-5 years . For example alot of us worked the same job, but had different rate of pay. This is where alot of people leave, because you dont feel rewarded for the work they put in .
Pros
Monday to Friday job
Cons
This company has a policy where they dont give pay rises

Horrible mostly
Its a circus. In worst way. Main thing paperwork have to be perfect, horrible managment. Poor communication and if have something thats mostly given out. Looks like they mission to keep emloyers very down. Cut hours, less money, more and more expectation.Really i could not tell too many pros. Maybe the cheap warm food and free gym.Faulty and old equipments, people who are living, (often happen, might have reason)will be not be replaced.Jobs will shared between remained workers. Bad treatment, bullying etc... as much as you work harder as much as they gives you more and more jobs less pay and no thanks. If you are a great actor, actress you can work pretending, its your place and you probably will like it for a while.. Otherwise keep yourself away.
Pros
Cheap warm food, free gym
Cons
Not enough place to tell

Sodexo has high expectations and flexiabilty from its employees
Working for Sodexo, you gain a wide range of experience, stretched to your limits, you'll learn on the job everyday. The workplace culture varies according to where your posted and your contract your tied into. The most enjoyable part of the job is that no two days are the same and the hardest part of the job is the expectation that you can fix everything for the client while cutting costs and making savings which they couldn't make for themselves when they were managing the service directly. Hours can be long
Pros
Variety of work, learn lots
Cons
Work is hard
