    Pros

    Free meal for working a full shift, energetic and hardworking coworkers, relaxed environment. Company car at the GM level.

    Cons

    Managers who have no business in a management role. It's hit or miss with the managers as they prefer to promote from within. However, spending a year on grill does not necessarily qualify one to manage staff.

    Advice to Management

    Find qualified people to manage your businesses. Stop taking advantage of illegal immigrants.

    Pros

    Great Company who really cares about your growth in the company as well as the compensation for your promotions.

    Cons

    Sometimes a GM can become power hungry and become very controlling but if you talk to them and let them know how you feel they will most likely abide to your needs

    Advice to Management

    Keep Pushing. It will pay off and you will be rewarded. Trust me I'm in my second promotion right now and will soon become an apprentice.

    Pros

    good culture, nice and friendly coworkers.
    good food quality "theory"

    Cons

    uneven quality among restaurants, low hourly pay, promotion bias.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of micro management managers, regional managers have to be nicer to store managers, so that they will treat employees nicer.

    Pros

    -The company is still in a strong growth stretch
    -Offers bonuses at different levels depending on role
    -Office employees get $100.00 per month in free food
    -Office employees get $100.00 in Chipotle swag
    -Benefits are good
    -Sabbatical offered after 10 years
    -Bi-annual company retreats
    -Free chips and salsa every Thursday

    Cons

    -The Columbus office is a regional, accounting center. The main office (HQ) is in Denver, CO so you feel a little bit like a red-headed step child. Plus there's often times when travel to Denver is necessary
    -Pay is below average
    -Very little upward mobility in the accounting center (unless you're willing/able to move to Denver)
    -Management are very good at accounting...not so good at managing teams
    -Pay is extremely low considering what is asked of the employees
    -The only way to get an above average annual performance rating is to somehow manage to save the company millions of dollars. The review process is a joke (although that's common).

    Advice to Management

    The management team is extremely capable when it comes to accounting knowledge and practices. However, they lack extremely when it comes to developing employees...or even relating to employees in most cases
