Lack of: Respect, communication, empowerment, fairness, teamwork. Opressive environment.

Management (Former Employee)

I worked at New French Bakery full-time for less than a year

ProsA few good people that want to make a difference (but are overpowered). As one of the positive reviews stated: Geat product! (but forgot to mention what it's like to work there.) Innovative in the market and have customers convinced they are cohesive.

ConsNot interested in using critical thinking in correcting recurring problems and issues. No foresight of consequences of some of the practices - seem to think they are protected from a major event that could destroy the company. Unfair practices in treatment of people. People not allowed to perform job hired to do. People are set-up to work against each other. No forum for group involvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a Board of Directors. Deal with HR issues, support one another in not allowing some of the business practices, set some goalsl other than productivity, understand and apply continuous improvement, develop some cross-functional teams, stop being afraid, upset the organization and take a giant leap so that people will actually want to work there. Letting things "roll off your back" is really allowing yourself to be unrightfully mistreated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
