    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great team- what's left of them after more than half were made redundant.

    Cons

    Lack of staff. This has been ongoing for years but has got much worse. Unrealistic expectations: everything is timed and you're given 3.5 hours to produce products with an expected time of 4.5 hours. Literally impossible to achieve expectations. Old fashioned and expensive product range. Unreasonable about travel times in the early morning.
