    Pros

    Many positions available in many parts of the company. You can work in one location and transfer to another if you move or would like to try something different.

    Minimal pay with high expectations and no training. If you need help with citizenship they give you the runaround and don't provide the needed paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training immediately upon hiring and be more supportive of your employees needs.

    Pros

    Its a job in a bad economy. Its a big company so there are many opportunities.

    Cons

    Overworked/Underpaid. No work/life balance. Benefits aren't that good. There are too many processes just to cover your butt and to be accountable. This leaves little time to actually manage.

    Advice to Management

    Treat Managers fairly and there won't be the huge turnover.

    Pros

    They have a good health benefits plan and I was eligible from day 1.

    Cons

    This is one of the worst company ever to work for. They are very unfair to their employees. Compass received contracts from alot of these big company's and I was placed there to work. The company pays compass over 5G a month just for my service and I take home less than 40% after working so hard. The company pays compass for Bank Holidays but Compass hold that money and they don't pay us for that day. They give a standard job description; but in the contract they state that you will perform duty as per the company that I am assigned to, which is way beyond the job description. They lock us in a 2year contract that you have to be a SLAVE for them for 2yrs before you can work for the company that they assigned us to.

    Advice to Management

    Workers should be compensated according to the duties and requirement of the vendor. Not a standard contract/pay where only you alone is Winning. Workers should be able to apply to the vendor after working for 1yr.
