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

    Pros

    Unique brand, interesting menu options, high standards, clean stores, pays well. The company believes in itself, and is good at making you drink the Kool-Aid. Growth potential if you perform well and are liked by the right people. Competitive-minded operations team, very good training. High bonus potential, great parties, fun environment. Get your drinking shoes on...

    Cons

    Doesn't always live up to its ideals. Relies too heavily on UK influence, and has difficulty adjusting to American tastes and culture. If you are a Pret Person, quirky, and in with the right crowd, you're golden. If not....good luck. Pompous and thinks too highly of itself.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relying too much on the UK. Continue to do what you do well. Even with the drawbacks, you're a terrific company overall.
