    I worked at Compass Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The upper management was very supportive and encouraging to employees. They showed appreciation of jobs well done and were very easy to talk to about any issues that employees were having. I always looked forward to going to work.

    Cons

    I wish there were more opportunities for personal growth within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being approachable and fun with employees. It really makes a difference when "the Suits" show interest and a good nature with all employees.
