I worked at Chef Works full-time

Pros

Flexible schedule and decent benefits

Cons

They don't treat people equally. If you are on the 'friends & family plan', you'll be fine. They don't enforce policies. They grow 20-30% most years, but don't hire staff to accomodate the growth, so it's a big disorganized, insanely busy place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start enforcing policies on the people who don't follow them. Be honest and do what's RIGHT, not what will make you look good to other people.

    I worked at Chef Works full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good for someone right out of university with little to no work experience. The management will hold your hand and will control every project you work on.

    Cons

    This is not a good company for someone who can self manage and is forward thinking.
    The job is sold as customer service, but it is primarily data processing and answering phone calls.
    The management speaks inappropriately about employees to other staff members when that employee is not present.
    There is little to no communication from management to staff members through anything but email unless the employee initiates it.
    Disapproval is handled by ignoring the employee rather than addressing the problem to resolve any issues.
    A very unpleasant working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a management plan that encourages creativity and taking initiative rather than condemning employees who implement organization and new revenue streams.

    I worked at Chef Works full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people working there
    Vacation/sick time is good
    Decent activities

    Cons

    Pay is only ok
    HR is NOT there for you
    Very political/misogynistic
    Open opportunities for men, friends, those of the same religious beliefs only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow all your employees to flourish, don't play favorites or allow your management "team" to play.
    Promote those with experience and education, not just family or friends
