    Pros

    Ivy's has a a large range of very experience bakers, and the owner is always will to train inexperienced bakers if they have an interest. There is so much opportunity to learn. There is always work, and the atmosphere is jovial.

    Cons

    It is a very fast paced work environment, with a large wholesale business. Speed is very necessary to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! The owner is a wonderful man.

    not a great bakery

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Braintree, MA

    Pros

    In terms of work, its fairly simple - there aren't as many customers as there used to be so the work load isn't that heavy.

    Cons

    Quality of product has gone down so much that customers are leaving left and right. Management is too cheap to put more than one employee on at during a shift so its very boring, and on the rare occasion that there is more than one customer in the store/on the phone it can get stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more than one person on a shift, listen to your employees' suggestions, stop making counter help prepare pastry because they are not trained to.
