    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free food. Pay isn't bad.

    Cons

    upper management thinks they are better than everyone else. They spend (waste) lots of money on dinners for themselves and "leadership conferences" that are really just excuses to party in Orlando or Vegas. "Business" trips to Boston and Chicago are really expensed vacations for their families. The Brits have taken over NYC. Pret has brought over many managers and leaders form the UK and 'beheaded' many of the US employees who built the brand to make room for them.
