    Pros

    Work/life balance, Salary and benefits are top of the line. The people I work for are friendly and professional. I am treated with respect and I feel like I matter to the organization. Every time I think my job can't get any better.... it does!

    Cons

    I can't think of a single thing that I dislike or consider a con working for Aramark. I have worked with many companies in my 30+ years as a Manager, and none come close to being as great as Aramark.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing all of the wonderful things that you do for your workers. Valuing the hard work and dedication that they have for the company.

    I worked at ARAMARK full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was always busy with new and different events. It was never dull or borrowing. Your time spent with other managers was insightful and you had a feeling of ownership of your work.

    Cons

    Long Long hours that some times felt like day's turned into weeks. The longer you worked there the more say you had .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from outside more and fine more managers that had experience.
