    I worked at Compass Group USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very relax laid back atmosphere,but fun and exciting as we'll.The perks don't hurt either ie: the food,flowers etc that can be taken home are just icing on the so so sweet cake!!

    Cons

    To me there were not many cons,maybe the lack of team work that is needed when it's time to break down after the parties are over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more incintives to stay overtime because you are required to work well after your schedule "off" time with no extra pay and that break down is not easy or fast kinda work.
