    Pros

    Weekends off is nice although I would take a quality working experience over time off any day. Benefits are ok if you qualify.

    Cons

    Corporate, regional and local leadership was disengaged, unavailable and/or otherwise disconnected.
    Highly unlikely that I'll ever work for this company again. Actually I couldn't imagine why I ever would
    Worst Human Resources possible as well

    Pros

    the medical is okay. With all that you have to put up with it never seem to balance out.

    Cons

    *They hire a lot of "new" or "no" -experienced individuals to fill spaces.
    *Too much bureaucracy management is stifling.
    *Highly flawed corporate accounting department.
    *Sexual favors for promotions.
    *Under skilled workers at various potions.
    *Need to speak English.
    *Hired people from communist countries. No lie....

    Advice to Management

    There is no help that I can offer to management. The egos are inflated and their food taste like dog crap. LMBO It's true this one Chef believed his food tasted awesome. He was boasting one day about his latest disaster. I just so happened to walk by and it smell like dog poop. These WASP have their minions that will tell them a lies. That their food is good. In reality their food should be band from human consumption. I give the company a big fat ZERO. I left on good terms. I really wanted to tell them it was an awful experience. Management is stuck on themselves. Bunch of jerks!LMAO

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

    Pros

    Over the years, Compass was able to sign large prestigious contracts. It is great to talk about their success (if you are into that), but in reality their success is much more important than yours.

    Cons

    cut throat management style / unpaid bonus / uninterested HR department / poor communication / high turnover rate. I would not recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    value your people

    Pros

    Benefits and decent hours (sometimes)

    Cons

    Don't believe a word they say from the upper management to the account level.
    They will use and abuse you until you've had enough and leave. Do not expect any training or on boarding its non existent sure all the training and programs they offer are great but you'll never be able to take advantage of any of it. Take it from me just don't do it!

    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.

    I worked at Compass Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No pros whatsoever, worst company I've ever worked for thanks to having someone that def should not or ever be in a management position!

    Cons

    Do not work in Binghamton NY as housekeeper. The manager is nasty, rude, condisending! They can't keep people there cause it's so unprofessional! All the workers tried to get this manager either transferred or fired but it didn't work. This company is horrible/nightmare! Compass needs to do an " undercover boss" on this place and see how management really is! I'm sure this manager is sweet as pie to her superiors, they are def blind sided!

    Advice to Management

    What management? More like people that should be immediately fired!
