    Pros

    you can get lots of experience in a short time period and is a well known company.

    Cons

    There is a lack of structure, everything has to be done by yourself even if is not your responsibility. There is no time for you to slow down and your job depend upon what you do every day there is no regard about your loyalty. The opportunities for advancement are poor and uncertain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define your policy better and be aware that your employes are your best assets. The current policy makes your employees treat their job as boot camp where they can get the knowledge and the experience necessary in order to get a job with a better work environment and increase their opportunities of doing better. Loyalty works both ways!

    I worked at Agata & Valentina full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The food is incredible, the produce is fresh and the people are welcoming. Benefits include fresh pastry and coffee as well as bread and other perishables from the section in which you work. Decent sanitation.

    Cons

    The prep area is not quite large enough for the shipments of bread that are received.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to notice when customer service is at its best, and acknowledge it.

    Pros

    If you enjoy working 24/7 and not having a live outside of work, this is the place for you.
    You will be asking to work 6 days for 12h and on 7th day you can expect a meeting.

    Cons

    So even as you hit successful numbers, and sales will be great don't expect a good word. They will quickly look for areas to hit you and put you down.
    CEO just dislike his Management, he is always talk to them down and have them for the worst thing that could happen to his business. So if you with passion and highly motivated individual with creative instincts you can be sure that after few months you will lose all of that, and start getting a depression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The average manager stays there no longer then 8-10 months. They quit before start getting full benefits. Don't expect bonuses.
