Current Employee - Team Member

I have been working at Pret A Manger part-time for less than a year

No words, Just awsome. Manager is cool, Leader is awsome. I like being a barista there.

Cons

I completed my training. But manager didn't accept my graduation. :(

Current Employee - Marketing Executive

I have been working at itsu full-time for less than a year

Pros

Itsu has helped me develop personally and professionally since joining 9 months ago. Though it is super fast-paced, the amount of growth you experience is insurmountable. I'm proud to work for a... brand that represents my values - healthy food, accessibility, and beautiful design. My team are experienced individuals and I learn from them daily - the culture is one of supporting one another and I feel respected by my colleagues. The social life is also a big win. We have quarterly whole-company socials, alongside Academy team briefs weekly. Everyone knows each other well within head office. The company is undergoing huge growth & I can't wait to help take this brand internationally!

Cons

You do get thrown into the deep end with lots of fast-paced projects & responsibilities- this may not be for everybody, but my growth as an individual has accelerated because of this.
