    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time

    Pros

    The values of this company and those they help the employees work with are amazing. Its basically a big family. Everyone is friends. They give the head office people free lunch every day just like the restaurants. We get a trip abroad once a year as a thank you and team building once a year. Plus a conference abroad in places as far away as south africa and brazil, all expenses paid. you get 4 weeks paid leave xtra once every 5 years. The training is great, as is the internal development. Honestly, this is one of the best companys i've ever worked in!

    Cons

    The company is maturing fast. That can leave some people by the way side. So a little more help with that would be good.

    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've never worked in a company that actually live and breath their values. They look after and develop their team like no other in the food industry in the UK. Coming from my previous employer (One of the biggest restaurant and pub chains in the UK) I finally have a work life balance!

    Cons

    They don't offer 'Live-in' positions however that is due to often being purpose built units rather than old pubs.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values, get involved, enjoy yourself and be positive.

    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people. 4 week sabbatical every 5 years worked. 3 day conference every 2 years with plenty of team trips and teambuilding events

    Cons

    Long working hours if your line manager doesn't manage their recruitment properly. Not loads of options in the north outside of the restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in making sure there is always enough back up management positions.
