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

    Pros

    Compass group allowed me to develop my culinary skills, and management skills, while allowing me to keep my life as a single dad in line.

    Cons

    Compass group has been holding on to many accounts in the CT region that are small and not challenging for me, and with company's leaving the state i feel I want to find work elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better system for hiring, and for management guidance at the unit level from the top down.

    I worked at Compass Group full-time

    Pros

    Most people you work with are friendly and work as a team

    Cons

    The majority of management want you to make the company your entire life. If you get called on your day off because they need help and you can't come in they treat you like crap for a couple weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your help the way you would want to be treated.
