    I worked at Compass Group USA as an intern (less than an year)

    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.

    I have been working at Compass Group USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people who work for Compass are great at their job, compassionate, and they all have fun personalities. You always have the opportunity to move up in the company, and they always push for you to do so. They also have accounts all across the country, so if you ever wanted to stay with them, but wanted to move, they are always willing to me accommodating towards that.

    Cons

    The challenges right now are dealing with constant changing in rules and procedures. However, this is because they are in the middle of redeveloping many aspects of the company for the benefit of everyone in the long run. So it is just temporary. Long term, there are really no cons for working with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a way to get more people aware of job opportunities across the country. I know several people who want to move off somewhere but feel that they cannot afford to. This causes them to feel stuck where they are. I have informed some of how you can apply to other jobs in the company at many different accounts across the country, however not everyone is aware. Find out where employees would like to move to, and help them figure out a way to get there.

    Depending on the sector, there is often a lot of politics and layers to work through to get what you need to be successful. Compensation and benefits are good for the hospitality industry.
