Pros

Some of the pros for working for the 4th largest company in the world is that you have a great infrastructure to rely on when you need to & it's worldwide, so making an international transistion is relatively easy

Cons

Everything else about this company is a con. The people they employ, the policies they abide by, the HR department, the pay, the benefits, the growth opportunities and potential, etc. Any and every thing else you can think of.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to managment is when you take a survey of how things are going, really listen. There are some good ideas. Re-assess what people are paid when a new responsibility is given. Do 360 reviews - where employees get to review the managers. Truly have an open door policy, dont tell people they can talk to upper management when it's frowned upon. Such a large company that cuts corners in every way, should have more money for benefits - they shouldn't be lacking so much.
Review each branch of the company first hand. Almost everyone i know that works for Compass is unhappy.

    Pros

    Some high quality people work here. They take their jobs seriously and for the most part get along with one another. The sniping/gossiping problem is relatively mild.

    Cons

    Office management is oblivious to the staff. My last year's employee evaluation was almost 3 months late with no explanation. I was highly rated, but then management reneged on my raise, cutting it by two/thirds. Equipment breaks down and stays busted sometimes for weeks(this is partly a hospital management i.e non-Compass failing). Management has cut expenses to the bone and got rewarded for doing so. My hours have been cut twice in three years. My employee evaluation for this year is already a month late, again with no explanation. Some office people don't even want to talk to kitchen employees. Management thinks they can cure all problems with slogans and rah-rah pep talks. And we have more company meetings than Dilbert.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who have some people skills. Read W. Edwards Demings' book "Out of the Crisis".

    I have been working at Compass Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Treat their employee well. Pay the salary on time to their employee. As i am working at one of the chain of compass group, so i don't have much to say about compass group.

    Cons

    Did not find much cons accept that the pay is considerable less to the amount of work employee do and also benefits is not appropriate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give an equal opportunity for all the employee
