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

    Pros

    Good opportunities for growth and earning potential for the right individuals with a suck it up and as you are told and cut-throat type of personalities. Training and growth opportunities for those who are meant for this line of business and are planning on sticking around, but that's pretty much applies to every business.
    It's a global company, therefore there might be opportunities to choose from various geographical location to work at.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work/life balance may not be best but that is probably more related to the nature of the business than company's culture.

    Pros

    Good work hours and you get free meals. Great safety culture for the industry and pay isn't horrible.

    Cons

    Hard work, you are short staffed so mgmt has to pull employees jobs. Always expected to do better than the last year and unreasonable goals when it comes to safety, paper cut can be a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Redesign jobs and HIRE MORE PEOPLE!!!

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

    Pros

    Yearly pay increases based on merit. End of year bonuses, usually

    Compass Group will train their managers to go above and beyond, but hourly employees are not taken care of so much.

    Training the hourly staff is just as important as any job function.
