    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Here's my list of pros during my long tenure at Pret A Manger: Co-workers, Customers, Free Food, Compensation, Mystery shopper bonus, and 2 galas Yearly!........The C.E.O and his partners has always been Pleasant to me.

    Cons

    In Spite of the wonderful Pros of this company, Your subjected to emotional blackmail and serious labor issues with Most shops being run by Unprofessional and Bias Managerial staff backed by a corrupted HR Dept.

    Advice to Management

    The Core Values you instill in your Employees are Virtuous , And is the the secret to your success!.....On the Contrary, I strongly suggest a Labor Union!, so employees that are treated unfair have a platform for their voice to be heard without resentment or the sinuous backlash from your Inadequate Managerial staff & Flout HR Dept.!!!! who support them.
