    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Così full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The company will pay for good experience.
    - Two weeks vacation within 90 days
    - Full medical with in 90 days
    - Can advance quickly with in the company.

    Cons

    - You have to negotiate a good salary from day one. Salary increases after hire are very low 1 - 1.5% annually
    - Over the last two - three years the company as undergone some major restructuring issues and still face many up hill battles. There has been two CEO's in the last two years, recent released there VP, and let go a host of regional and store managers.
    - Lack of self-identity, Cosi struggles to fine their place among Panera Breads & Corner Bakery and unfortunately, Cosi is not any closer to figure that out.
    - Cosi does promote from within, however, those being promoted are usually not trained properly and are expected to perform at max efficiency. its a recipe for disaster. Those not performing are demoted or let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training, Training, Training and more Training. Don't let our MIT's go into a store unprepared. Everyone is overwhelmed; from the TGM's down to Shift leaders. We need to get our Identity back! We need to be Cosi again, not a giant yellow box that tries to compete with Panera & Corner Bakery. RETHINK our menu options... and stop putting out LTO's without all the proper training and media!!!! Seriously.
