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

    Pros

    Working inside an open space office. Easy to communicate during the day with other departments.

    Learned from mistakes not risks.

    Advice to Management

    Build stronger independence with the U.S. Market than grabbing solution straight from the U.K. Markets.
