I worked at PizzaExpress full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Good working environment with good team - Some good benefits eg. xmas hamper - Get to meet new people every day - Job security - Easy to transfer between restaurants

Cons

- Overly worked for the money you are paid - Too competition focused rather than customer focused - Managers bonus so tightly driven it affects the restaurant running

Advice to Management

Focus on your employees & customers, stop with the stupid competition and making managers focus more on winning a weekly, monthly, area competition and focus on good service

    Pros

    there are no reasons absolutely no reasons to work for them

    Cons

    -no breaks allowed -no benefits -no company sick pay -no cpmpassionate leave or any special leave -the company is a Bully -no career progretion -lower your self esteam and motivations -very long hours up to 65 a week so you end up working less them minimum wage -no traning or revue and so on ....

    Advice to Management

    stop thinking just about your bonus and think about the people that they are actualy doing all the hard work from waiters to chefs because at the end of the day with out waters and chefs it will be no PizzaExpress. during the 8 mounths i worked at PizzaExpress i find out that it is THE WORST COMPANY THAT U CAN WORK FOR a friendly advise do not go there.

    positive place, potential to develop yourself, to much politics though... - based on restaurant

    Pros

    - well established company - potential to progress - good as an additional job - as for supervisor or assistant manager - money okay - company is growing and developing itself too - friendly atmosphere - it depends on people you work with though - staff discount card and benefits more to come - as there is going to be more discounts to use in some of the high street main retailers - there is few really good managers with good leaderships skills

    Cons

    - too much politics - lack of decent organised benefits as pension scheme and health care - there is something but really no good value - mainly you have to pay for it - not as much good managers who could encourage staff to develop, recognise a good work and reward their staff - managers want the biggest profit as possible with spending as little as possible - to just pocket their additional bonus money, with no keeping in their mind it is possible only thanks to their hardworking staff - all over vouchers - customers used to come to our restaurants for the brand not only because they have voucher to redeem - as for supervisor or assistant manager - money okay but not exceptional (considering the amount of responsibilities) - very unsociable working hours
