    Their are some lazy co-workers.

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

    Pros

    Hours-great for parent while kids in school
    Provides shirts
    Some co-workers are great

    Cons

    Low pay
    Not trained properly
    Told one thing by someone and told another thing by someone else, so who do you listen to?
    Very click-ish and gossip talk
    Favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL employees with respect and LISTEN to what they tell you. Don't just cut them off & put your thoughts in because you've already heard it before.
    Train everyone throughly.
    Instead of being out of the office or staying in the office, watch all working. Don't just assume that when you come walking through everyone is doing their job. More often than not others are too busy gossiping or on their phone, while the others are actually doing their job.

    I have been working at Compass Group full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, great vacation, good experience, cafe downstairs, no weekends expected

    Cons

    A LOT of hours for salary employees during month end close, a lot of turnover, always covering for another employee because of turnover

    Advice to Management

    I think Compass has a lot of good things going for it but you have no life during month end close! A lot of good employees move on because the schedule is grueling.

    I have been working at Compass Group full-time

    Pros

    This company has a diverse number of jobs, accounts, clients, locations and opportunities. You can find many different and challenging roles. There is SO much opportunity for growth, you just have to be willing to try hard to find the right path!

    Cons

    Some contracts/clients are better to work for than others, each has their challenges. Upper management can really make or break your experience, and the only way to give feedback or get change is sometimes to move to a different department or unit or sector.

    Advice to Management

    Take the feedback of your employee surveys seriously. Appreciate your employees and provide positive feedback and support, don't always say YES to unrealistic requests from the client in charge.
