I worked at Sodexo full-time (Less than a year)
Baking and serving all the athletes at UT Austin. Nice facility and location.
Poor management and a corporate structure that does not value employees but rather acts as though they are expendable. Poor pay, ask much of employees, work doubles, work overtime, do the work of two, mandatory blackout days that are 12 hours with no breaks or meals. When employees ask for a day off without 2 weeks notice they can take it but they are charged a point and after 7 points they are fired. Sick days are charged a point. If one gets back a bit later from an appt. they had permission to take they get half a point for this 'tardy'. Have to pay for parking or find a space and walk in quite a way. Management backs terrible managers and hide evidence of misbehavior. Athletes ask for certain baked goods and bakers are often denied the ability to make them even though all ingredients are pre-approved. New hires and temps are paid more than seasoned employees.
Advice to Management
Resign and have UT take over this kitchen and not source it out to Sodexo. Take great care of the collegiate and Olympic athletes. Make this the premiere training table in the US and not just call it that. It matters how we do things, do them right, value your employees, pay them well and work with them without a point system.
