I have been working at Compass Group full-time

Pros

Responsibilities are minimum compared to high paying occupation, although you still work hard. Almost everyone that works there is genuinely friendly, or feels like they are in the same boat as you. They usually seem to give their employees a large discount on eating their own food.

Cons

They compensate terribly for technical jobs. Knowledge of hardware and software systems is not adequately respected by management. They treat their employees as expendable, but pretend to value everyone for the individual that they are. Moving to another position internally that is considered a promotion will land you a small raise no matter how complicated the new position is. Most people leave the company to come back so they can get hired for a higher pay. Uninspiring environment.

Advice to Management

Those with technical knowledge should be compensated, because you rely on them to do much of your work.

    Pros

    Some of the people are really nice and most people get along really well.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Management treat the staff like crap. They're constantly rude and walk around the place commenting on the staffs appearance and acting like they're golden gods to be worshiped. Vast majority of equipment is faulty. Staff are expected to work like robots and are criticized for asking for basic work rights like taking breaks. Even if you do over time you never get paid for it. Constantly understaffed and under equipped for basic things (Like coffee cups glasses etc.) Staff morale is very very low.

    Advice to Management

    You're not Gods answer to the worlds problems.

    I have been working at Compass Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location ( Although the company can't be responsible for that, the client owns the premises not the contractor)

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, workplace is full of gossipers and grasses, staff are expected to work over-time for lieu (like a day off will pay the bills). Management treat staff as a cost and not a human being. A lot of the employees are very thick, lacking in common sense, logic and reason. Double standards, If you get on well with the manager you pretty much get what you want, 2 people can do the same offense on separate occasions but only one will get disciplined. Managers threaten retribution but fail and even refuse to provide or show the company documentation to warrant this. Management find it amusing to talk to staff rudely and even try to justify this because they are management!

    Advice to Management

    Stand back and let HR clear up the mess YOUR management team have created!
