    Great advancement opportunities if you're willing to work for it [got $2 raise and new title in 1 year], great regular customers, community involvement, chances to do catering and events for extra cash, community involvement, awesome management team

    Cons

    Tips are inconsistent [not that the company has anything to do with that]

    I worked at Ben & Jerry's

    Pros

    Discounts for you and your friends, and a real close ties between employer and employees. Get to taste all the ice cream and find about a the social things that Ben and Jerry's work on.

    Cons

    It was very seasonal job. High turnover. Sometimes the people can be difficult, coworkers and customers. I worked for a local franchise, so I guess that is to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that all the employees are on the same page. Pay more for multi-taskers! Hire cake decorators! That's all.
