    I worked at Compass Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hours, time off, work life balance was nice but not worth the politics and bs. If you know a higher up you are set.

    Cons

    Its sink or swim. They won't help you when needed but will reprimand you for failing to ask for help. Its ridiculous the amount of work put on one person. Management spends their day in the office chatting and playing games on their cell phone after arriving 4 hours after everyone else. Depending on your direct manager expect to work a lot with little to no recognition or assistance.p

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your backbone meaning your employees salaried and hourly.
