    I have been working at Compass Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you do a great job and stand out, there are lots of opportunities for advancement. They have so many different sectors in so many locations, it's easy to transfer. Most locations have great hours for hospitality work.

    Cons

    There are some awful managers, but I think that's with any company.

    I have been working at Compass Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are the best things about the company

    Cons

    Opportunity for growth is minimal for minorities
    Easily "pigeon-holed" in a position
    Management promotes based on relationship/preferences to those who are "buddy-buddy"
    Often overlooked for positions overly qualified for

    Advice to Management

    As a Fortune 500 company, you would do best to realize that the "underdogs" within the company watch and see everything. We make up a large population of the company and it is so unfair that as minorities we are easily overlooked for positions that we are qualified for that are offered to those who depend on us to make them shine.

    Pros

    Implements great business concepts that drive results across ALL sectors of the business. Open opportunities year round. Higher management are experts at facilitating business needs.

    Cons

    Opportunities are competitive but not limited. As you work with different teams you realize the poor level of analytical and communication skills can influence your own as well.

    Advice to Management

    Managers spend much time building their team. Analysts ONLY want to promote good relations with managers, so if someone is not responding well it's because they may not see nor understand their value to the manager.
