I worked at Compass Knowledge

Pros

Work environment is relaxed and full of smart people
Company respects their employees and treats them well

Cons

Work can be extremely repetetive depending on work load
Tasks are generally not challeging
There is little space for individuals to be creative or innovative since there is a prescribed method for most tasks and few avenues for ideas to be shared and inacted

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should learn to better utilize your workforce. There seems to be a high percentage of employees with advanced degrees but the majority of the tasks require, at most, a bachelors degree. Compass learn to capitalize on the talented people that it employees.

    I worked at Compass Knowledge

    Pros

    Some of the best people to work with, good benefits and a clean new office environment. Regular M-F office hours for almost all positions.

    Cons

    Top management has issues with delegating tasks and authority. Too many chiefs all trying to run the departments, so employees end up dealing with managers conflicting directions and priorities. Promotional opportunities are limited and very discriminatory. Turnover rate is high no matter what department you're in. Lack of training on behalf of the company is poor and the entire company is a giant rumor mill constantly turning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and become part of the team instead of acting like an "untouchable executive." CKG employees need executive leaders to work with them not just "above" them.

    I have been working at Compass Knowledge

    Pros

    Reduced costs to enter in degree programs the company offers, the staff that are "in the trenches" are really great people.

    Cons

    Senior management responds at a very superficial level to employee concerns, if at all. Very little communication is provided to employees. Director-level managers feel more like puppets than actual supervisors, their ability to represent their direct reports feels undermined by senior management. Too much power given to business unit leads, upsets the balance between the business units and functional team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebalance the point of power in the company and look at creating a healthier work environment. Too much leniency is afforded the business unit leads and it consistently comes at the cost of dissatisfied employees.
