I have been working at Pret A Manger (Less than a year)

Pros

- weekly Mystery Shopper (+£1 per hour for the whole team if the result is positive, opportunity to get £100/£200 bonus for outstanding/superoutstanding service)
- free meal and drinks during work
- 50% discount in all Pret shops
- Pret parties (Christmas Party, Summer Party, Friday night drinks)

Cons

- huge pressure especially on the higher positions
- working overhours without being paid, no breaks (happened to me only while working on the Team Leader position)
- lack of recognition from your own manager elimitates the opportunity of growth (basically only your own manager can push you up on the career ladder and the reasons for promotions really often seems to be based on personal preferences)

Advice to Management

Definetely have a deeper insght into the progression situation within the shops. You lose lts of amazing people just because they stay unrecognized due to personal preferences of manager.
