I have been working at Pret A Manger (More than 5 years)

Pros

Get to work with nice people and different cultures.

Benefits

Flexibility for Rota, once you became senior.

Easy to get holiday dates, when needed it

Management courses are helpful.

Cons

Long hours,
 inexperience Operation Managers.

Companhy values have been lost along do way, bonus scheme not very fair.

Pay raises no fair either,
You don't get reward for results and work ethic, just if you have a close relationship with your Operation Manager, you are the new hot of the month.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people more closely, massive turnover on Pret Managers at the moment and everyone just ignoring the reality, huge unhappiness amoung the managers.

Create and fair and competive process for development.

Opportunity Network for Pret employees, just another flawless tool at pret, most of the vacancies have people already for them, they want to create an illusion you can develop yourself.

Focus on team members it's essential, but managers dictated the success on your shops, and drive passion to the team.

HR doesn't protect the managers.

PIP, pret Partners only people, whom have friends already in, not related if you can contribute to the company, just based on relationships.
