Approves of CEO

I worked at Pret A Manger (More than a year)

Pros

Good food allowance and 50% discount.
Serious about (paid) breaks and holidays.
Food for homeless at the end of the day.

Cons

Clear talking is just marketing: if they have a bad opinion about you, forget any clear feedback.
A lot of pressure. The workload can be very challenging especially compared with the wage.
With a bossy manager your life might become really hard and sickening.
The coffee calling system is messy during busy hours, I stopped thinking to step up as a barista because of that.

Advice to Management

I do not give any advice to management, they are always right of course.
