    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    3G Capital owns BKC and creates a culture around meritocracy. Talent rises -- you either go up or out. They reward based on your ability to find opportunities for improvement; furthermore, capitalizing on those opportunities.

    Cons

    You work long, hard hours. It's a bit cutthroat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. It's not that the meritocracy is bad...it's just simply how you motivate.
