    I have been working at Compass Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to take on new tasks.

    Cons

    Promotions are the carrot they dangle in front of you to get you to take on task far above your pay grade then never follow through. Recent upper management hires have created a culture of closed doors and hidden agendas. Don't expect to ever have an open and honest discussion about the future of your career with upper management.

    Pros

    The company provides room for significant growth

    Cons

    Long hours. (no overtime) Pay is not that great unless you reach upper management. Staffing and Supplies are a constant issue/concern. There is no succession plan in connection with promotion. Yes, you can advance, but training for the next level Is not provided.

    I worked at Compass Group part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    you get fed often, so there never is a need to worry about lack of food incase you do work here

    Cons

    -pay rate rarely goes up -extremely political amongst coworkers -management micro-manage often, so be prepared for someone on your shoulder constantly - supervisor that can work but cant delegate tasks, nor communicate with newer employees, so training is never really "done" until someone complains about you to upper management-damned if you, damned if you don't. - cliques are still a thing for people assumed to be adults, so mind everything you say or do, cause they definitely will. -teamwork is a word you don't hear often and that rings true here, if you don't get yourself established, you WILL suffer the consequences greatly at the worst times, so getting social as soon as you walk in your first shift is crucial -work tasks will get piled on top of yours if someone is lacking on their load, as being a man, I have witnessed the pass women get "consistently" and the moment a male slows down his pace- its nothing but write ups and meetings about your work effort. Its okay though cause they don't say your name
