    I worked at Compass Group as a contractor

    Pros

    Very nice and comfortable place to work. Would work through them again. If all Canteens are the same, a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Didn't find any. Everyone was really nice and made me feel like I was an employee instead of a temporary worker.

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

    Pros

    Morrison is committed to advancing careers. I love that there is a game plan for you to map out how to grow professionally and personally.

    Cons

    When trying to hold people accountable, it sometimes feels that HR will side more with the employee and less with the manager. I know we have to follow procedure, but more power should be awarded to the manager on site to handle issues that arise .

    Advice to Management

    Conference calls and meetings tend to be scheduled at times that are counterproductive to working. Sometimes it can be hard to finish daily work tasks.

    Pros

    The ability to grow professionally, as the tools for success are available if you are interested. The company has an awesome networking community.

    Cons

    Numerous tasks that may not be useful for your specific client.

    Advice to Management

    Provide Managers with more options to tweak good information to share with non-compass Associates. Most of the information provided are geared towards Compass employees and the Compass Way and all employees in an account are not Compass employees. Allow the ability for Managers to obtain their own check stubs.
