I worked at Panera Bread full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great, healthy food. For the most part, staff is very friendly, hard working and a pleasure to work with. The actual work was challenging and therefore enjoyable. Never boring.

Cons

Company currently settling a class action suit for break violations. Nearly worked myself to death as a graveyard baker. The job is extremely demanding. I felt that I was working for half of what I was worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get more $$$ for you and your employees.

    Pros

    There really aren't any limitations as to how far you can move up in the company if you're well liked by your superiors.

    Cons

    The management is highly judgmental and doesn't care about their staff. All that they care about is customer comments, nothing else matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't base Raises, Salaries, and Bonuses on customer comments because all it does is promotes bribery.
