    I worked at Compass Group Canada full-time

    Pros

    They are always recruiting, always in need of workers

    Cons

    You need to know someone in upper management to get recognized for any hard work, promoted etc. Low wages, lots of work - the harder you work, the more they will throw at you, with little to no training and will expect you to land on your feet, quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize, restructure - hire people into management positions that actually know how to organize teams and manage effectively - pay the right people, to do the right jobs. Invest in revamping training programs, sending the right people to these training programs. Stop taking advantage of hard working/long term loyal employees.

    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

    Advice to Management

    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.
