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

Pros

- Felt like my bosses cared when I had an issue. Always quick to respond to any questions or problems
- Very big on diversity
- I think upper management really tried to make work enjoyable/fun but didn't know how to relate to lower-level employees- often spoke to them like they were in elementry school
- I believe this is a great company for those working at the corporate level. For those involved in operations, I don't thnk things are as nice.

Cons

- They told me they would promote me in 3 months and after 1 year it never happened
- Have to wait a year and a half to apply to another position!!
- Felt like directors and those not directly involved in the operation didn't care to hear our opinions and therefore didn't understand half of the things going on that they were criticizing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time talking to lower level staff and finding out how to reach them

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

    Pros

    It is a work hard, play hard mentality so as long as you are dedicated to customer service, food and quality it is the company for you. They are always trying their best to stay ahead of the curve on trends within the foodservice industry.

    Cons

    You have to be patient to move up.

    I have been working at Compass Group USA part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good place for part timers that need to work but want to have summers off and want to be home
    for their children when school is out.

    Cons

    Not a company where you can have any upward mobility outside the local job sites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More face time with satellite school cafeterias would give district managers a better view of their environment.
