I worked at Compass Group USA full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The company manages many different companies, and that works to your advantage. You can be selective about the facility.

Cons

The benefits are horrible unless you are in management. I had to work four years to get two weeks paid vacation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your hourly associates better. Compass Group USA generates a lot of revenue, try to spread the wealth down to the corporate ladder.

    I worked at Compass Group USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Felt like my bosses cared when I had an issue. Always quick to respond to any questions or problems
    - Very big on diversity
    - I think upper management really tried to make work enjoyable/fun but didn't know how to relate to lower-level employees- often spoke to them like they were in elementry school
    - I believe this is a great company for those working at the corporate level. For those involved in operations, I don't thnk things are as nice.

    Cons

    - They told me they would promote me in 3 months and after 1 year it never happened
    - Have to wait a year and a half to apply to another position!!
    - Felt like directors and those not directly involved in the operation didn't care to hear our opinions and therefore didn't understand half of the things going on that they were criticizing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time talking to lower level staff and finding out how to reach them
