Stressful overall

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Typical Day working as a mobilisation manager was stressful from start to finish and I put this down to lack of knowledge in the engineering section of the company. unfortunately in my situation, I learned not to trust sections of the business that were more involved in the hospitality side of the business rather than the hard services.It was better to go with the flow because if you questioned any process that was in place that did not go down very well.The hardest part of the job was not being allowed to bring new ideas into the hard services knowing they would work and bring in extra revenue.Making sure the client was happy not Sodexo management

Pros

None

Cons

very long hours and travel

Terrible place to work

Sodexo is an awful place to work. No progression opportunities and regardless of how many years you work with them the wages always stay at minimum wage.The managerment system is a joke. They take home big pay checks while the staff do all the hard work with no gratitude, they come and go as they please but still collect their full salary whereas the staff are being docked if you are even 3 to 4 minutes late.There is one half an hour break where you are being watched by management, you have to ask permission to leave on your break. You are still expected to get up while on your break and server customers if one comes up to the till.They say you can attend any course you want from the list they provide but any course you ask to do you are told you dont need that course.I wouldn't recommend Sodexo to anyone at all

Pros

There are absolutely no pros to working for Sodexo.

Cons

Where would I begin.

Nothing stands in the way of an account. No support from senior management.They don’t care or support the the staff Everything is disciplinary with them.If you stand up for yourself they will just force you out and hire someone else.

Pros

None

Cons

Absolutely no trust in anyone

Positive management

First off I'd just like to point out that there is nothing interestng about being a cleaner. Cleaning ranges from locker rooms and toilets to warehouses and labs. The job itself can be hard work and there is a procedure that must be followed when doing your job. Health and safety is paramount here at the Eli Lilly site and Sodexo do everyhting they can to ensure your safety and security.The main thing I would like to mention however is the management team here, all of them have been fantastic with me from start to finish and they always maintaiin a positive attitude. This is hard to come by these days.

Pros

Double pay on sundays

Terrible place to work.

In all my working life I have never worked for a company with absolutely no morals whatsoever. Sodexo does not remotely care about its employees. It has a culture of greed and exploitation. Sodexo is actually evil, yes evil. My strongest advice is never work for these lowlifes. They pick ignorant uneducated grifters as a "management" team. They will actually steal from you if they can.

Pros

No pros.

Cons

too many to list.

Horrible place to work

I would not advise anyone to work here. The management treat the staff very badly. It took 3 wks for me to finally get my wages. There were barely any breaks I worked so hard that I ended up suffering from exhaustion. My doctor told me I had to take a week off because I was physically ill and vomiting in the morning.

Cons

No pros

Thought workplace to be in

Jobs are overstretched duties are excessive. There is too much management that makes many poor decisions. There is always pushing to do more not to improve. It not a place where you can speak your mind out and point what is wrong. Salaries are not just non competitive they are low.

Cons

Unpaid overtimes, overated work expectations, u polite management

A very poor company to work for

A corporate giant that cares for neither people nor principles. One of the worst experiences working I have ever endured. Managers steal, people plant things to have people fired, and the list goes on.

Pros

None

Cons

Poor pay, no job security, underhanded and legally and morally questionable tactics in doing business

Horrible management

The job interview was very good and I was immediately offered the job. At first I thought it was an OK company to work for but he more I was there the more I noticed how unprofessional the management was. A lot of times the wages were wrong and I was left short in my wages and would have to wait for weeks until it was sorted. Management very unapproachable if you needed anything

Pros

Uniform provided

Cons

Too many to list

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

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.

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
