    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.

    Not a bad company. They take advantage of employees.

    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 Management

    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

    It's a good place to work, a Monday-Friday job, never late nights. Not much room to grow.

    Cons

    A lot of turn overs in this company.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    nice people to work for, when you leave work you are tired if you are older, we have nice benefits. they are willing to work with you if there is a problem or a family emergency,

    Cons

    if you don't suck up to management, you don't get away with things, we don't get overtime usually training is one day and people who smoke, get more breaks than the ones that don't,

    Advice to Management

    the only thing i have to say is that the older generation are hard workers, they have alot of knowledge respect them and have the younger ones learn from them if they want to respect their jobs, working is hard and nobody said it is easy,

  11. Good company to work for if can meet targets
