    I have been working at Compass Group USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    More than enough opportunity for advancement for anyone motivated and skilled enough to work for it. The company provides the tools and resources necessary for each associate's growth. Unlimited upside potential. I have personally never witnessed a company out more energy into protecting/promoting their associates.

    Cons

    Large company that is spread out over many different geographies and industries. People uncomfortable with networking may limit their growth potential. However, the company provides networking opportunities through a system of meetings....."CORE"

    Advice to Management

    Continue the current focus on investing in your people........that's your biggest ROI

    Pros

    Best company for culinary grads. I came out of culinary schools and started as a Sous Chef with Morrison's and slowly worked myself up the ladder. Great company and resources and the pay is above average and they offer excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons besides getting acquainted with the paperwork. It takes time but it gets easier when you have everything aligned.

    Advice to Management

    be patient and plan your career there are many areas with exiting job opportunities
