    Pros

    You can meet and work with some great people from all over the world.

    Cons

    The company is trying to brainwash you, they expect you to give up your life and be ready for Pret 24/7; they want to use you. There are a lot of favouritism, which leads to promoting incompetent people to more senior roles. The salary system is completely unfair; people who work for the company for 5,6,7,etc. years get the same salary as a someone who just started a few months ago. The management expects you to do the workload of 2 or 3 people, including doing their job sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    It's not the NASA, just a sandwich shop, where human beings work, not robots.
