    I worked at Compass Group USA as an intern

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, company values, delegate responsibility. I worked there as a intern in the Human Resources Department.

    Cons

    Training could be more well established. There was a lot of mentorship, but no formal training program which would have been nice.

    I have been working at Compass Group USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great company with different facets for all. I do not have any real complaints.

    Cons

    Within my department growth opportunities aren't as high in number, it would be best to find positions within other departments. The ideals of management are also a bit ambiguous and one should probably always question what areas they believe growth should occur in order to advance.

    Pros

    Pleasant working experience without much tension. Generous opportunities are given for personal growth. Great room for promotion.

    Cons

    Sometimes not be given many opportunities to learn. There are some leaders who are willing to spend some time on coaching, but not all of them. It is understandable that they may be very busy, but it will be best if be given more mentorship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more training. Online classes are great, but want more mentorshi[p program.

    Pros

    There are no pros with Chartwells at Texas A&M. This company is a disgrace and does a disservice to Texas A&M.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to care about the employees and the customers at least as much as you care about the bottom line. Money isn't everything!

    Pros

    Accounts for all service types. Big & small
    most accounts are Mon-Fri

    Cons

    They stress the do More with Less logic which hurts the staff and the clients. Over worked employees often get stressed out and end up quitting or they do something to get fired.
    hard to get ahead unless you are a serious brown noser.
    Corporate cares more about making money off of marketing materials and management fees than they do about client needs.
