I have been working at Compass Group part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some high quality people work here. They take their jobs seriously and for the most part get along with one another. The sniping/gossiping problem is relatively mild.

Cons

Office management is oblivious to the staff. My last year's employee evaluation was almost 3 months late with no explanation. I was highly rated, but then management reneged on my raise, cutting it by two/thirds. Equipment breaks down and stays busted sometimes for weeks(this is partly a hospital management i.e non-Compass failing). Management has cut expenses to the bone and got rewarded for doing so. My hours have been cut twice in three years. My employee evaluation for this year is already a month late, again with no explanation. Some office people don't even want to talk to kitchen employees. Management thinks they can cure all problems with slogans and rah-rah pep talks. And we have more company meetings than Dilbert.

Advice to Management

Hire people who have some people skills. Read W. Edwards Demings' book "Out of the Crisis".

    Treat their employee well. Pay the salary on time to their employee. As i am working at one of the chain of compass group, so i don't have much to say about compass group.

    Did not find much cons accept that the pay is considerable less to the amount of work employee do and also benefits is not appropriate.

    Pros

    Daily food allowance
    Changing circumstances (not in cube all day)
    Reasonable compensation
    My team has many quality people that are easy to work with

    Cons

    benefits are voluntary and not very good/cost-effective
    Upward mobility is limited
    Easy to top-out your skills quickly without new challenges on the horizon

    Advice to Management

    As division expands, it would create less turnover if management would openly discuss career paths and opportunities. Currently many people leave after 1yr or so because of lack of upward mobility
