    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Pret A Manger

    Pros

    Good pay Free meals Traveling Work Parties Training For all levels of employment

    Cons

    Favoritism with management Hiring is based on looks Long hours expected No work life balance All push with no support No integrity A lot of show and dance for support center and president/ceo

    Advice to Management

    Your employees will respect you if you offer genuine support. It is all about what your shop looks like when the CEO is in town. Stop favoriting managers, no one respects you for it.
