Working at Pasta Pomodoro.

Vice President, Marketing (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsPasta Pomodoro is a dynamic place to work; always changing and evolving. The food is great and most of the people are pleasant to work with. Anyone working in the corporate office has a chance to try new initiatives and ways of working, assuming the idea is logical. The owner is generous with free food and espresso for employees and he throws a generous holiday party for all restaurant and office staff. The owner is a generous with his time and works harder than anyone.

Cons2008 meant hard times for the restaurant because of the economy, so there was a lot of negativity at the corporate office and at some of the restaurants. It may be the same in 2009, but time will only tell. Anyone who is not Italian and working in the corporate office will have a little culture shock. The Italian guys running Pasta Pomodoro don't bother with niceties or deference. Most of the time their rude, but you get used to it. And it is just the way they are. They're not actually trying to be mean. After most conversations with them though, you'll feel insulted and demoralized, but you toughen up.

    Pros: When the Italians owned the company, it was an incredible place… Cons: The Italians no longer own the company. The family… Advice to Senior Management: Good luck! Upper management and new corporate team need to take a look at what made Pasta P hugely successful in NoCal… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Cool concept with promise! Down to earth business owners who are a bit out of touch with running a restaurant operation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Pasta Pomodoro full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Culture & Values are great; however, weren't really brought to life in… Cons: Old school style of management. Talked the talk, but unable to walk the talk.… Advice to Senior Management: Empower your people - they know how to make it… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
