    Pros

    There are no pros whatsoever to working with this company.

    Cons

    Pays too little. No room for growth.NON-working supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company doesnt know the first thing about healthcare! Unsanitary work environment. They expect you to just be glad you have a job. Them crossing over to healthcare was a money move. This is a multi-billion dollar company and they don't give a rats ass about those who are helping them make the money.They expect more out of the part timers than the full timers. Working for this company is like working in a prison.The supervisors do not think they have to work especially when they are short staffed and think their only job is to order everyone else around and never contribute to the work load themselves. They act as if the employees have to pay them to work there.This is an AWFUL company.

    I worked at Compass Group (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    there is nothing good about this company

    Cons

    Treated as if you should be "Happy to have a job". If that's all you care about good luck, that's all you should expect. Do not expect to be appreciated. And do not expect anyone to acknowledge what you bring to the table. Professional growth is not a something that occurs within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Appreciate your employees don't make them victims.
