No bonus compensation for lower management. I feel that this needs to be restructured so that the managers that truly make the most impact get some kind of reward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give lower management some type of reward when they exceed expectations.

    Pros

    Great Management Team- all of the RVP's and SVP's I have worked with are good people to work with.
    Des has turned this company into a Sustainable Company and controls are destination. There was a time when Centerplate could of folded at any minute but those days are long gone.
    GM's are pretty free to run there operation without a lot of micro managing.

    Cons

    Weak corporate support center for the field operators
    Not a great bonus plan
    Lack of internal awareness about open positions for you to gain advancement. A lot of times you need to know someone to find out about a lot of the positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company needs to work harder to promote from within more. It seems that when a high level jobs come available they are filled with people from the outside.
    I also think they need to recognize the hard work the managers of small venues do. Venues under $1.5M do not seem to get the recognition the larger venues do because they don't host huge events but they work just as hard as everyone else.
