    Pros

    They provide ongoing job training and encourage employees to explore new opportunities within the company by promoting and transferring within. Where you start is not where you are stuck.

    Cons

    Depending on which contract you're with, work/life balance is difficult. Expectations can be exhausting and there is not always flexibility. Many times it feels like they are more concerned with keeping the client happy than its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain flexibility and trust your manager-level employees to provide the service standard expected. Understand they have the best interest of the company in mind and allow them to make judgments based on their knowledge of their individual account. If you're employees are happy, the client will be happy.

    I worked at Compass Group USA full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited upward mobility. I was offered a promotion after just 3 months there. So you can move up quickly but it is tedious work.

    Cons

    Long and tiring hours. Manual labor for the most part. Maybe because it was in an airport, either way you'll have no time for a personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more part-time workers to alleviate the work load of full time workers. Over time should be OPTIONAL but it felt mandatory most of the time.
