    Pros

    * A step up from working at a sandwich-counter only shop like Subway, Quizno's, Jimmy John's.
    * No late nights or graveyard shifts.

    Cons

    * A series of bad business decisions has driven away most of the old A.G. Ferrari customer base from the company's "glory days" - the company has been whittled down from 13 stores to 6.
    * This current ownership, the third such in the last four years, does not listen to what remains of the old customer base in terms of what sort of product they would like to see in the store. Instead, they have decided to take the approach of trying to "beat a dead horse" by pulling ideas out of their hat, completely out of left field.
    * The current ownership decided to get rid of the very nice Willie Bird Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner, which had been a company staple for years, much to the dismay of many loyal customers (you cannot get a Willie Bird turkey at Whole Foods, Safeway, or Lucky!).
    * Current employee turnover is at an all-time high, FYI.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what remains of your dwindling customer base in regards to what they would like to see sold in the stores; they were there first, they remember the "good old days", and know what sells.

    Price your sandwiches accordingly and fairly; a basic turkey/cheese/lettuce and tomato/mustard+mayo should NOT cost $10.99 - why would anyone waste their money when they can get a better sandwich at Lee's Deli, The Sandwich Spot, or Tony Baloney's to name a few, for a few less dollars.

    Drop the slick, corporatized approach and adhere to a more Lower East Side (NY), old-school aesthetic and theme - specialty food shops/delis are a birthright in NYC, they do it right!
