    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to trust long time employees. And stop changing everything every 3 months or so. Also give us long time employees a chance to move up.

    Pros

    I was employed for three years

    Cons

    Constant Harassment. Failed attempts to reach out to HR because they communicated everything to my manager. Fired for child illness. Lack of integrity, lack of honesty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Micromanaging and let people thrive. Bringing people down doesn't help them work better.

    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.

    Pros

    Great teamwork at the local level. So many opportunities within the company if you are willing to relocate. Loved the freedom to be creative and to be allowed to work on my own.

    Cons

    I find it unfortunate that many of the companies under the umbrella of Compass Group don't work together better. Why paid an outside company for temp labor when you can work together to benefit your own team?

    Pros

    Work from home so there is a lot of freedom with the schedule. You are essentially your own boss, which of course has its benefits. Competitive salary, company vehicle/phone/laptop. Gas card and corporate card.

    Cons

    Essentially zero training. They give you a number to hit and that is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees.

    Pros

    Opportunities to grow w/the company. There is growth if you are willing to play the game.

    Cons

    If you are male you can be very successful if you are a women your voice made not be heard. If you are heard you may not be taken seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open and honest, understand the HR policies for the state that you work in. Understand the women are not emotional. They view things differently - open your eyes and listen to the discussion points.
