thanks for reporting this issue. we have fixed this issue in SQL Server 2014. At this time, we have determined that it does not meet the bar to be fixed in earlier release. Please feel free to re-activate if this is indeed a concern. One work-around is to load a sub set of data fromt he source table into a temp table and then do the compression. This will provide you some idea of the compression that can be achieved
