I worked at Compass Group as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

It's a casual job so can supplement your main job or is good if you are a student. Tips can be good depending on the restaurant you are working in. People are generally very nice. Overall it's a good job.

Cons

As it's an event based company, the senior management tend to get very stressed out during the day and can take it out on their staff - you need a thick skin at times.

Advice to Management

You can catch more bee's with honey than vinegar..

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to change role and site

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork regarding safety and systems, but the practice and support isn't always there.

    Advice to Management

    I'd love to see a little more walking the walk from management. Staff are often working under difficult condition, in remote sites, so small things like getting ordering right, rostering appropriately, acting on hazard reports etc can go a long way toward making the whole team more cohesive and efficient. My experience is that site managers do a lot of putting out fires and not a lot of truly productive work.
