I work for compass in an in store cafe for a major retailer. I am a manager at the unitThe relationship between the client and ourselves can be a little strained sometimes, but its an ok place to be.The work is busy, and includes early evenings and weekends.Unfortunately i am now working for my 5th regional manager in 4 years, which isnt very helpful as the areas change a lot.my cafe is also due to close in april 2021, and there is very little we can transfer to, due to there not being a lot of hospitality open right now.The result is probably redundancy, as there is very little effort in finding us a job within the company.Dissappointing end to what i thought would be a job that would last. I would stay with the company if possible
Pros
never a dull moment
Cons
too many changes to regions

I loved this place, even though it was very busy and stressful. But the team was good most of the time and we helped each other. Of particular importance is a good manager - we had a terrible manager who failed the business, and his behavior with colleagues and clients was terrible, but we also had a manager who appreciated our work and did not bother to say "thank you", which was an incentive. about us. But the customers were great.
Pros
Free launches

If anyone in the Compass group could be bothered which I very much doubt they could really do with someone from higher management going back to the ground floor so they can see for themselves exactly how staff are being treated. You are asked to stand outside in all weathers whilst you wait to sign in first thing in the morning (06.00, freezing in winter) also they are supposed to be a cleaning company, the mops used are as black as coal and if you ask for clean ones you get in trouble, same as the cloths. Managers and team leaders have NO duty of care to their staff and are not interested in any difficulties that you may be experiencing
Pros
It's a job for which you get paid
Cons
No duty of care from anyone and you can't learn anything or advance

No care nor support for their own employees . Low morale management. Worst communication and management I work for in Compass group was medirest. Training would be 0.5* , general standards 0.5*There are bad employees, but medirest is one of the worst. Having covid apparently is not allowed 🤣 during probation period. Like some individuals can personally control worldwide pandemic.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Low morale

Worse company to have ever had the unfortunate experience of working for. Minimum pay, no pension, no sick pay.Complete lack of support from management. Expected to do overtime regardless of other jobs/ commitments you might have outside your contracted working hours. Expected to drop everything and cover at very short notice. Awful working ethos and atmosphere. They did nothing about bullying that was taking place, despite making a statement.
Pros
Having a job
Cons
Everything - avoid at all costs

Wages are always wrong. Not enough staff for the amount of work. Management favourites are rife. Moral very low and People who leave are never replaced. Management lie to you all the time and make out that they care and are there for you if you need them. Hence iam looking for another job.

Based on my own long-term experience working for Compass Group, I would advise if you have a hint of self-esteem you should actively stay away from that absolutely filthy, billion-making, exploitative, and hyper-capitalist inferno/hole.

Not enough labour hours to finish the job with high expectations.No overtime for manager, no recognizing your hard work, turn the site from bad to good reputation with 5 star score on the door.They don't recognize or remember the good thing you did, always the wrong one that will appear on every conversation.Management not pretty care about your situation. As long as client happy you will be fine.
Pros
Free lunches as you like
Cons
Long hours

Long days. Supervisors do what they want
