    I worked at Bon Appétit Management part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All of my exposure to management gave me lots of experience learning to improve my food knowledge, and gave me the opportunity to help develop other staff members. The company is clearly committed to buying local products and supporting the community they serve. The quality of the food is outstanding. I worked in a variety of capacities for Bon Appetit, and while catering or serving or prepping food itself is not fabulous, the positions are paid well for the area, and it is stable work as long as you work hard! I could always work if I wanted to (as a part-time employee, I could pick up extra shifts, or help in another department).

    Cons

    Many supervisor changes in my years there. Long hours- but that comes with catering jobs! Food service is sometimes repetitive, but again- that's the job.

    Great atmosphere and positive environment to explore new and exciting cooking techniques, with access to the best possible local sustainable ingredients available.

    Limited room for growth. Some times the size of the company makes it impossible to get noticed and set yourself apart from the rest of the flock.
