I have been working at The Works
Pros – Socially responsible company.
No late nights.
Overall company culture is decent, and the product served is excellent.
Good benefit package.
Cons – While no late nights, some very early mornings.
Advancement opportunities limited.
Very little operational support.
No real training program to speak of, as a new manager there is much you just need to figure out.
Work life balance can be a challenger, with long hours and weekends and holidays required (this is pretty much the industry norm).
Senior management can at times undermines store level managers.
Advice to Senior Management – Invest in a real training program, set up new managers for success.
Invest in professional development for existing managers.
Work through your store managers, not around them.
