    I worked at Compass Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible enough for a college student, compensation is above minimum wage but below those with experience, almost always hiring, night and weekends off

    Cons

    Under par compensation for various positions, not much else to say about the cons, really. I'd still be working for the company if it paid more. Equipment was regularly down or malfunctioning.

    Pros

    The upper management was very supportive and encouraging to employees. They showed appreciation of jobs well done and were very easy to talk to about any issues that employees were having. I always looked forward to going to work.

    Cons

    I wish there were more opportunities for personal growth within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being approachable and fun with employees. It really makes a difference when "the Suits" show interest and a good nature with all employees.

    I worked at Compass Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I don't have much good to say, my time with Compass Group was not pleasant.

    Cons

    More focus on cost and appearance (more like cheap set dressing) than on product and service. Poor communication, mediocre benefits, scarce career development opportunities, and inconsistent pay scale. They also appear to walk all over their "partners" when they can get away with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust those you gave responsibility to and listen to them, but verify what they are saying. Take the time and work with them to see the issues they deal with on a day-to-day basis.

    Pros

    Ability to move up in ranks if you are a go-getter. Company benefits are great.

    Cons

    Work-life balance when in stressful project management crunches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the show called Undercover Boss. The middle-management staff are the ones who work the hardest.
