    I worked at Compass Group full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to large, creative group of professionals across other accounts.

    Cons

    True "goals" not honestly identified. Rewarded for inappropriate business behavior...focus not on operational success, but purchasing as much product from vendors that "perk" corporate. They allow food cost to go much higher than standard, at the cost of labor required to meet client needs. Rewards come from playing the numbers, not successful operational numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear up front - many employees have no problem with the profit model...but many of us have practiced our business in past successfully and ethically - hard for the second group to work at COmpass.
