    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    decent food, mostly nice people to work with, nice discount, good regulars, free coffee, soda and ice tea.

    Cons

    poor pay, always cut early, early to rise means early to sleep, shift manager was stealing from the safe and the GM knew about it and let it slide several times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's okay to try and be our friend but you have to remember to manage us as well.

    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fresh-hot, quality bagels, schmear & coffee! With a good discount, darn good even.
    Merit based advancement to mangement level.
    Regular Guests.
    Free Wi-Fi in most locations.

    Cons

    Unclear company direction: halting rollouts part-way through, fast food or good food fast?
    "Culture of waste" - ever changing POP, daily product waste, halted rollouts - it adds up.
    Decrease in employee benifits over recent years.
    Coupons - why devalue your product?
    Below industry standard pay for longs days (10-12 hrs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Focus on the core of your product base: Bagels & schmear, egg sandwiches and coffee. Wraps, salads, thins, poppers, catering with delivery, online catering, an endless line of new sandwiches/ salads... Compare the small, simple menus of highly successful upcoming food enterprises to the costly, high-inventory, expansive menu of Einsteins.
    *Don't fall prey to every sales representative trying to sell you something to fix what's not broken. *Harken back to the days when the company was still private; have variety in bagels/ cream cheese/ coffee not everything but?
