      Poor CEO and dishonest Management group

      Pros

      Goderich is a nice place to live and work ,pay is good and for the most part have really enjoyed working here until the past few years.

      Cons

      Company is being micro managed by a leadership group who won't take responsibility for their poor planning and choice's that took this company from being highly productive to barely getting by on a daily basis. They treat their staff terribly and are currently using scab labour to run a mine with untrained people and risking lives instead of working on a contract with their unionized workforce for whom the have put out on strike with unrealistic contract demands.

      Pros

      The hourly pay is good, benefits are good, pension is good, hourly people are awesome, they pull each other along. The work in the mine is interesting and rewarding, safety is only what you make it. Two deaths in the last few years, I use to work hundreds of hours of overtime to help the compqany fill orders, now since all the political crap has been going on, I dont feel like it anymore.. I wish it was the way it was three years ago.

      Cons

      profit sharingg payouts is non exsistant, even though the company claims record profits, some supervisors are complete bullies, intimidators, unsafe, foollish. They lie in the small things, therefore cannot be trusted with the big things. Same goes for Senior management in Kansas. You jerked us around CEO , you cant be trusted. The work schedules are terrible, no family life. Little to no vacation time, no personal rewards for excellence in work. Lay offs are to many and to long, makes for a disengaged workforce, dont review gallop poll findings, CEO insults goderich workers, by saying there something in the water that makes us different. What kind of a CEO says things like this and gets away with it? Stop hiring "green" managers.

      Company in midst of revitalization and trending upward

      May 4, 2020 - Sales Management in Overland Park, KS
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, good HR department focused on employee development, very stable commodity based company. Hired outside consulting firm to help improve processes and direction. Compass has great assets and is positioned to do well long term.

      Cons

      Being publicly held forces the company to be beholden to Wall Street. Too many decisions are made with the stock price in mind. Weather has big impact into success year to year. Can be big workload swings depending on weather. Board of Directors should be rotated more often. Some have been on the board for 15+ years.

      Plant Nutrition side is very unstable with no direction

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, met some good people, sales reps are good people, allowed me to show my talents and go to work for a much more stable company

      Cons

      Management- bought a company for $485,000,000 with no direction on how to penetrate the market and compete directly with proprietary products of companies they want you to sell too. It is crammed down your throat everyday to move a product with no help from the top. They hire people to sell fertilizers that have no fertility experience and don't train them. The most difficult part of agriculture is understanding fertility and they hire people with no experience which isn't surprising because management has no fertility experience or knowledge at all. I said at all but they make $400-500,000 a year with bonuses that are unreal. I think the plany nutrition side will be gone in a year, VP left to go to work in construction, construction. He had no fertility experience either.
