    Pros

    I can't believe how great it was to work for a company like Papa Murphy's. Culture is awesome and people are great.

    Cons

    No cons. It was just my time to move on. Not a bad thing. I left on good terms. I would work for this company again if the stars aligned correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You have built a wonderful place to work and a product that people love.

    Pros

    Great company, solid foundation moving forward, great compensation/benefits... excellent work environment... I would encourage anyone to apply who wants to turn their job into a career

    Cons

    Headquarters located in Vancouver, WA... Some travel is involved which can be difficult if you have a family and are wanting to stay home more... but that also depends on job title.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. Stock is reflecting how the company performs. Always keep customer service & low prices as your business model!

    Pros

    It was a great job to have as a high school student. Sometimes it would get incredibly busy and time would go by fast.

    Cons

    The people I worked with had a little clique. Overall there is not much that I would complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what the customers are doing, if someone comes in every week and complains about something so they can get free stuff, the manager should confront them.

    Pros

    The management was great because they worked with my schedule.

    Cons

    I never got sufficient break times. I would work a 12-13 hour day at times with one 30 minute break.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being flexible with schedules but make sure your employees are getting the right amount of breaks.
