    I worked at Nando's UK full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Pay is on par with industry and bonus is achievable. Food and Drinks, Parties, trips for all levels, which has changed from just mgt Good training right from the beginning and you can progress very quickly if you have the right determination. People focussed at the Nandoca level, not so much Asst Mgrs.

    Cons

    Work life balance for Nandocas Move the goalposts sometimes As it has got bigger it is more around control rather than the entrepreneurial spirit from a number of years back. Micromanaged at times. No consistency between RD regions, can do some things in one region and not in others. Job is getting more and more complex for Nandocas and Mgt. Started out with limited menu...

    Pros

    Fun Great work - life balance Family environment

    Cons

    Base pay isnt great and bonuses dont get good until General manager level Historically set targets that are TOO difficult meaning often going through years with no bonus at all. Central support team have a great time often too much of a good time to support the staff in the restaurants.

Very well looked after with a strong emphasis on work life balance and some amazing financial incentives as well. Biggest thing is they embrace...
