    I worked at Bon Appetit part-time

    Pros

    Bon appetit has a certain way of doing things, and if you have good leadership that can communicate that process, things work beautifully.

    Cons

    If the leadership is sub par, or isn't communicating properly, it makes the collaborative environment break down. Certain people will start pulling more weight than others, and nobody's happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give high fives. Increase communication across different moving parts.

    I worked at Bon Appetit full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company values and commitment in material and top corporate management. Enormous opportunity to grow as you progress through your career. I enjoyed working with peers from other locations on larger events.

    Cons

    Some management is not fully committed to company values. I believe there should be random drug tests; including managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees; really look at how hard they are working

    Pros

    Interesting challenges and people, with chances for advancement for those dedicated enough and (near) immediate overtime via commutes to other Bon Appetit locations.

    Cons

    Scheduling problems, and lack of turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and keep an eye out for talent.

    I have been working at Bon Appetit

    Pros

    Bon Appetit is very flexible with work schedules and allows workers to negotiate work schedules between themselves. The management is very understanding of the demands that are placed on students attempting to balance work and academic demands. Lots of (edible) perks that traditionally come with food service, but especially easy to take advantage of because there is very little (pretty rarely actually) direct management oversight of the workplace.

    Cons

    There is a serious lack of communication between the management and the student workers. Workers end up informing each other about different rules, regulations, and procedures, which is not necessarily a trustworthy or reliable source of such important information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    tell student workers directly/in writing of any new rules/changes etc.
