    benefits- plenty, atmosphere-usually very good, greate parties, possible to learn about running the business and progress in the company very quickly.... I say working for Pret is a journey in side your self, you meet many people.

    Cons

    Its a hard work if you want to progress.
    if you don't get it, not doing so well, have to much attitude you wont survive in this company.
