    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters bought Paradise for the store locations and laid off their management after 3 years of integration and assisting in PNRA going from $38 a share to $160. Then they retained the long term incentives that they offered for the management to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest up front on your intentions. It's the right thing to do. Loyalty has to work in both directions, not just worker to management.

    Pros

    Taking home leftover cookies.

    Cons

    Their top priority is money. Some customers and co-workers were rude. High turnover rate for employees and General Manger.

    Advice to Management

    They should promote a better working atmosphere which would lead to happier employees and better business.

    Pros

    Good employee discounts for decent food. Sometimes fun and relaxed working atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is poor. You only get 10 cent raises at the MOST every year for your review. They dont follow through on their training matrix, only enough to cover their a**. No rewards for good work other than cheap pins to put on you visor only non managers are forced to wear regardless of migraines they produce. Managers only act professional when big wigs are in town. New Mexico district manager favors those of his religion and promotes based on it (Mormon). Comes frozen

    Advice to Management

    Really observe your stores in Albuquerque. Go on undercover boss.
