I have been working at Au Bon Pain full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Early morning and afternoon hours compared to late nights in full service
 General Managers work late only on Thursdays and required to work only one weekend a month
 Fun and easy going customers make managing enjoyable
 Several long term employees on the payroll, helps maintain a strong core of hourly employess
 District Management and Executive Management appreciate and recognize good performance

Cons

Company culture and philosophy changes often and randomly
 Tendency to introduce new ideas and new products too soon and too frequently
 Challenging business to manage during downturns
 Although the bonus program is great, performance raises are far and few in between

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you do well and do it better
 FIgure out a business plan and stay the course, let it evolve and mature and then go after the new
 plan.
 Consider the intangible as well as financial upswing of providing hourly staff with better benefits
 and vacation.
