    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.
