Great mission, but execution varies at each account.

I worked at Bon Appétit Management part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The staff is like a big family. Managers are very approachable and you have the opportunity to wear many different hats. Meals are excellent.

Cons

Sometimes the environment is too much like a big family--bickering, gossip, and favoritism can happen. Not to mention the account may be put under immense pressure and have to take some short cuts in terms of sustainability (the company's main mantra).

Advice to Management

Make some surprise visits to the east coast accounts, which seem to see a lot less corporate reps.

    I worked at Bon Appétit Management full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smaller company owned by huge conglomerate; small company feel with big corporate backing. Business principles are good if/when followed; fresh, local food when and wherever possible.

    Cons

    Senior management not consistent with expectations of individual managers Senior management doesn't back individual managers if inconvenient Inconsistency with overall treatment of managers - especially men vs. women (look at their ratio of men to women chefs/managers....)

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes....not everyone is doing business the way that you may think they are.
