    Pros

    Service company with high customer service standards and great support structure. Strikes good balance between shareholder/profitability needs and concern for employees in a difficult economic environment.

    Cons

    Any downsides would be situational not systemic. If you are a good fit for the job, there is no better place to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep us on an ethical business track that doesn't put the company at risk. Look harder for energy and logistics efficiencies in offices and some sectors. Position the company through news releases and PR so that others will be more aware of this great story.

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement. Superstar qualities will get you recognized fast. Knowledge is power with this company, the more you know, the further you will go.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive, Communication can sometimes be poor, and benefits could be a little better, for the size of the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the things that are attainable, and work on the things that are not. Sometimes it's the small things, that make all the difference in the workplace.

    I have been working at Compass Group USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to move and transfer anywhere. Plenty of jobs available everywhere. Easy promotions and pay grade increases for those who want to move up. Upper management always there to help and give advice. It's much better working for compass than a private restaurant. My life quality has gotten better exponentially.

    Cons

    A lot of under achievers working for compass. Those are the people who give it poor reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing your teams to the next level.
