    Pros

    Good employee advancement opportunities for those who are looking for it. Large company with vast portfolio of sites, gives chances for movement with country and globally

    Cons

    Big wheels move slowly with some things, and many levels of management make reporting a challenge some times. Service provider companies such as this are usually on the lower end of the pay scale

    Organization in your daily tasks allow you to flow through the myriad of challenges you will encounter with this ever growing fast paced work environment.

    I worked at Compass Group Canada part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at the Toronto Zoo location so it was a little different than a typical job. The managers within the restaurants I worked in were ok for the most part, but I really liked our head site bosses. Unfortunately after I left one of them passed away and the other is retiring this year. It was a fun atmosphere with a young staff, and there was always lots to do in a day because the restaurants were so busy.

    Cons

    The hourly rate was very low. After working there for 8 years in total, and after 3 promotions (finally to a Supervisor title), I only made $13.25/hour. Minimum wage at that time was $11.25 for reference. That was the biggest con for me.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really know what to advise management because I don't know who they are anymore. But I guess communication between management is very important so that the policies/procedures are consistent.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time as a manager with compass group. The most important reason for working for the company is the support they give you throughout your training and also afterward. You never feel like you need to tackle problems without any outside suggestions. you can always reach out to people within the company to get their input on an issue.

    Cons

    Better healthcare benefits is needed
