    Great mission, but execution varies at each account.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe staff is like a big family. Managers are very approachable and you have the opportunity to wear many different hats. Meals are excellent.

    ConsSometimes the environment is too much like a big family--bickering, gossip, and favoritism can happen. Not to mention the account may be put under immense pressure and have to take some short cuts in terms of sustainability (the company's main mantra).

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake some surprise visits to the east coast accounts, which seem to see a lot less corporate reps.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's alright...

    Retail Supervisor (Current Employee) Wheaton, IL

    ProsDecent pay, the company stands for great values and beliefs, good food, nice employees and a fairly good place to work.

    ConsCompany doesn't implement values and beliefs very well, doesn't always treat employees the best and fires employees they don't like, even if they're hard workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know your employees, communicate more clearly, make expectations more clear (even your "Great" ones) and start offering benefits that match up with your values/beliefs.

    Alright

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked for the Bon Appetit service in my school, and my coworkers were very nice. They taught me what I did not know, and helped me and things got busy.

    ConsI often had 4 hour shifts, and it was very tiring to stand for such a long time.
