    Current Employee - Kitchen Hand in Canberra (Australia)

    I have been working at Compass Group Australia part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your generally working for a great client. Monthly training. Co workers can be great. Multicultural employees, so you can be exposed to lots of fantastic cultures and beliefs. Great pay and penalty rates.

    Cons

    Upper management really lack the skills to look after their workers. A positive environment isn't instilled or promoted to a point where workers believe in the concept. Time management is preferred over quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your management better. Those are the guys who are going to make your site and employees successful, not trying to cut costs whenever and wherever you can.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to change role and site

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork regarding safety and systems, but the practice and support isn't always there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd love to see a little more walking the walk from management. Staff are often working under difficult condition, in remote sites, so small things like getting ordering right, rostering appropriately, acting on hazard reports etc can go a long way toward making the whole team more cohesive and efficient. My experience is that site managers do a lot of putting out fires and not a lot of truly productive work.

    Pros

    The loyalty to the company of most colleagues allows project deadlines to be met in time. A professional link between middle management and their employees.

    Cons

    Unstable business in the current economic market. Upper management does not involve regular employees in changes which have a direct impact on the employee's daily work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on excelling employees in their work.
