    Pros

    Able to gain experience quickly without necessarily an education in that subject area. Many sectors (lines of business) to work for.

    Cons

    Unequal pay - vast differences for the same role in different departments. You will be paid a lot more at other companies for the workload.

    Pros

    Friendly place to work with fair pay. More of an employee than just an employee number like most other large organizations.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't great. Cafeteria isn't subsidized as much as you'd think for this being a food service company.

    Advice to Management

    Make job titles across the company more consistent.

    I worked at Compass Group part-time

    Pros

    There were no pros to this job other than it was part time so I wasn't annoyed for as long as I could have been.

    Cons

    Coworkers who didn't do their share of the work, managers and supervisors who didn't seem to know or care that people were clocking into work but then disappearing for HALF their shift, being left with only one other person to do a four person job

    Advice to Management

    Stop coddling the bad workers, start finding REAL help for the good workers who are just trying to do their jobs to the best of their abilities!
