    Pros

    Gold old fashioned American company. They make reliable burgers that have brought joy to millions of children worldwide. Great fries too.

    Cons

    Well, needless to say, McDonald's is not very healthy. Also, would it kill them to pay their people a little bit more?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the product to supermarkets? I'm obviously going to get the Chipotle burrito instead if it's next door. But if I'm at the supermarket and so choose to spoil myself with some of your classic fries, well hey now...

    Everyone needs to have the same standards and enforce the same policies. Also don't try to cheat people out of 6 month/ yearly raises just because of promotions or achievements.
