    I have been working at Morrison Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)


    Morrison is relationship focused, and I love it. There is a great culture of building relationship with our customers and clients, as well as across and up and down the company. This includes across sector lines with other Compass-USA sectors.

    To build and maintain this culture, Morrison provides a wide variety of training and development opportunities. The opportunity to grow with the company is not just for some kind of elite group, it is provided to every level (Vice President, Manager, Front Line, et al.)

    The relationship culture is also expressed in the day to day operations on the unit level. Because Morrison is so large there is nearly always someone in reach to share best practices, give advice on unusual situations, or even someone who will understand if it is time to "vent."

    There are amazing opportunities to grow a career. Because of Morrison's organic growth, an upwardly mobile career path is not only possible, but strongly encouraged. Managers are rewarded for developing and promoting their team members.

    When regulations change, as is constantly happening in the healthcare field, Morrison is quick to provide the tools and the training to adapt and help the individuals in the team to adapt. This is also true of industry trends. Morrison is "cutting edge" in our technology, our clinical practices, our health focus, and social responsibility.

    Morrison's commitment to diversity and inclusion is one of the things I am most proud of. This is far different from "tolerance, or acceptance." Morrison/Compass is enthusiastic about embracing cultural, ethnic, religious, and every other kind of diversity. They seek to integrate a variety of viewpoints and values in the workplace and beyond.
    Morrison's commitment to social responsibility encourages individuals and operations to be active in their respective communities outside of work. Environmental responsibility and sustainability also play key roles in the overall culture.

    Relationships are the key. To build and keep long-term relationships takes honesty, and integrity. That is not only true for relationship that keep over 97% of our clients, year after year, but for keeping happy long-term associates, like me. I am still excited and proud to work for Morrison after more than 23 years.


    I don't like the new bonus structure. I think it sends the wrong message.

    Advice to Management

    After several years of phenomenal growth, Morrison recently changed their bonus structure. Not for the better. The operators are the foundation for that phenomenal growth, and the bonuses are a great motivation tool. Reconsider those changes.

    Clinical Dietitian Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Orleans, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Morrison Healthcare (New Orleans, LA).


    The process was very easy. After the recruiter contacted me within one day the manager contacted me with an invitation to a live interview. Once I completed the live interview, it was within a few days an offer was presented.
    This company does like you to do a skype type interview first (before live interview), but I completed after.
