    I have been working at wagamama full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for, I have been with Wagamama for over 14 years and still in love with the company values and culture. We have created an atmosphere where our staff wants to come to work rather than they have to. we win together and we lose together

    Cons

    As yet we don't have senior managers annual celebration, but it is on the way as we are developing in USA

    I have been working at wagamama full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fast Paced learning as you go. Free food for lunches. great hours of work.

    Cons

    Organised chaos , too many times left to work things out for yourself, unnecessary pressure and unhelpful comments from experienced team members when your not sure of processes or when left to do something for the first time without being shown how to do things and then being made to feel bad because the shift is running behind.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for all staff! New staff to be shown the layout of their restaurant and for experienced members of the team to work as shadows with new starters to assist when setting up food prep in the mornings and have an understanding attitude that things wont go right first time.

    I have been working at wagamama full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    the people, the free food, competitive salary, development opportunities, challenge,

    Cons

    honestly none you shouldn't expect in this industry; 48 hour contracted work week, weekend working,

    Advice to Management

    reducing to a 40-45 hour work week will improve results
