    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity for bonuses and advancement (although the best one for the job is often not the one promoted in a timely manner). The company promotes a very lively, social environment.

    Cons

    The management plays favorites more often than not. Also, if you are overweight, older, or unattractive you can forget about even getting past the interview stage (exception often made for relatives of said favorites or management). Key roles and shift leaders must have open availability, which makes it impossible to have other employment. Overtime isn't allowed often, and managers often send employees home early if it looks like that 40 hour mark will be passed.

    Advice to Management

    Act a little more like management and a little less like the employees. I worked in 4 different shops and the song and dance was the same in each one.
