    Pros

    Very flexible hours that allowed you to work around almost any schedule. Great people who help develop many crucial job market skills

    Set in a college so the atmosphere was as you'd expect. Poor communication skills when it came to new information.

    I have been working at Bon Appétit Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of time off (unpaid) as the restaurant is only staffed minimally during summer and time off for students (you get two weeks off for Christmas, spring break, etc). The work is not hard and the place is always staffed well enough to deal with the students - it is very fast paced.

    Cons

    It is disorganized, and the pay is not good. The pay seems okay, however with all the time off it makes your annual income sadly low. The benefits are only okay and if you don't hold an office position you pay more on them so you can have them through the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and take employees behaving badly seriously. It is frustrating for people that work hard every day to see others not doing anything or constantly getting in trouble and not getting written up or fired.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good. Some managers friendly and very understanding.

    Cons

    They don't know how to run a budget, in turn they cut most employees hours nearly in half.

    Advice to Management

    learn how to run a budget and give employees 40 hours a week again. be more understanding towards employees.
