"After taking a role and given a salary that was 60% of my male predecessor (same role, same credentials, even same degree from the same university), I had routine job duties reassigned during pregnancy and was terminated my first day back 9 weeks post-partum in a "downsizing" that only included a few people. I specifically don't use the term "maternity leave" because Sodexo does not offer maternity or paid parental leave. They offer short-term disability to qualifying employees at a % of salary based on length of service, up to 6 weeks for a natural birth and up to 8 for a C-section, the first week of which is taken out of your sick days. FMLA runs concurrent with vacation and sick days--so if you take the full 12 weeks, they will run out your sick and vacation days, leaving you with 0 upon return to work (with a newborn). There is no back-up childcare. My office had no pumping facilities (but that turned out not to matter since they terminated me three hours into my first day back). Senior-level female executives in most verticals are either childless or have older children. Upon termination, I was reassured that it would "give me time to be at home with my newborn." "

"Corporate Flexibility is great but at a certain level (DM/Director+) you are expected to travel a significant amount. The highest levels have 50-75% travel which make it impossible to manage if you have a dual income/single parent household with young kids. Women tend to hit glass ceiling fast. "

"You do best with Sodexo when you are willing to take risks and grow your career. You need to put in the hours. They are serious about management standards. I work in operations, where maintaining client relationships is a critical skill. It’s frustrating when you lose a contract, which is becoming increasingly common in today’s ultra competitive environment, especially in partnerships with healthcare organizations. I’m at a point in my career where I’ve run into non competes and agreements not to hire- a real challenge at 58. Its not easy to find another contract at my level.. You really have to leverage connections to stay employed when you are between contracts, and it’s imperative to pick up new skills. Not for people who want to coast to retirement. Women are active in leadership roles at all levels at Sodexo. "
